Transform your ideas into reality with LOYAC
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.
