Trans­form your ideas into re­al­ity with LOYAC

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

At the frame­work of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween LOYAC and Bab­son Col­lege, the “BE” Pro­gram for So­cial ac­tiv­i­ties was re­cently launched and will con­tinue the end of the cur­rent month. More than 45 stu­dents where their ages vary be­tween 12 to 16 years are par­tic­i­pat­ing in this pro­gram. The par­tic­i­pants were di­vided into dif­fer­ent teams and will be trained by ex­pe­ri­enced su­per­vi­sors who were trained by spe­cial­ists and con­sul­tants from Bab­son Univer­sity.

The pro­gram in­cludes an in­te­grated ed­u­ca­tional ma­te­rial that in­cludes three stages: “Think­ing, Plan­ning and Im­ple­men­ta­tion”, and in­cludes many sem­i­nars with spe­cial­ists, field vis­its and ac­tiv­i­ties that sim­u­late the minds of youths and un­leash their cre­ativ­i­ties. Alaa Nasser, Se­nior Co­or­di­na­tor for Train­ing and Devel­op­ment at LOYAC, said that a com­pe­ti­tion will be held at the end of the pro­gram to eval­u­ate the stu­dents’ projects and present them to a panel of econ­o­mists from Agility, the Amer­i­can Univer­sity and Bab­son aca­demics to se­lect the top three projects within the cri­te­ria of qual­ity, ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion.

LOYAC will adopt and sup­port the win­ning projects to en­sure their ef­fec­tive role and par­tic­i­pa­tion in eco­nomic and so­cial devel­op­ment plans through en­cour­ag­ing and spon­sor­ing small en­ter­prises. Iman Al-Omar, co­or­di­na­tor of train­ing and devel­op­ment pro­grams at LOYAC said, “The ini­tia­tive aims to help stu­dents trans­fer their ideas into a suc­cess­ful work, con­front so­cial chal­lenges and find a va­ri­ety of ways to solve them.”

She pointed out that the Com­mu­nity Project is part of the Youth Ini­tia­tives Pro­gram to pro­mote so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity for youths. It also aims to train them how to take so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity at an early age, use in­no­va­tive meth­ods and adopt projects that have a wide so­cial im­pact. LOYAC has adopted the project of the win­ner stu­dent Tas­nim AlEnezi at the first stage of the pro­gram on 2016 who de­signed T-shirts sup­port­ing hu­man rights.
