ABK efforts in local youth development recognized
In light of its on-going support to the development of Kuwait’s youth, Al-Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) was recently honored by the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) for the vital role it plays in developing the skills of Kuwait’s youth population. The ceremony was held on August 2, 2017 at the MGRP premises.
The award was received by representatives of the Learning and Development team at ABK who conveyed gratitude to MGRP and reiterated the importance of working closely to help fulfill the common goal of supporting the youth of Kuwait and preparing tomorrow’s leaders to take the nation forward on a local, regional and ultimately, global level. ABK has been collaborating with MGRP to conduct its annual summer internship program since 2014, which targets young Kuwaiti university and college students, through the ‘ABK Academy’. The program combines lectures, on-site assignments and team projects, which offer students the opportunity to enrich their knowledge of the banking sector and gain firsthand experience in the work field, while emphasizing the importance of teamwork.
ABK is an avid supporter of education and has successfully built strong partnerships with many of Kuwait’s educational institutions to offer participating students a rewarding experience at a crucial point in their educational journey.
