The "Sum­mer In­sti­tute" is an in­te­gral com­po­nent of Teach For Qatar's train­ing pro­gramme. The eightweek in­ten­sive course serves as a foun­da­tion for the two-year Lead­er­ship Jour­ney, which pro­vides pas­sion­ate lead­ers with the op­por­tu­nity to pos­i­tively im­pact Qatar's stu­dents by nur­tur­ing teach­ing and lead­er­ship skills and by pre­par­ing Fel­lows for their place­ments at in­de­pen­dent schools. Nasser Al Jaber, CEO of Teach For Qatar, said, “We are ex­tremely grate­ful to AG Mid­dle East. Their con­tri­bu­tions have helped us pro­vide rig­or­ous train­ing for our Fel­lows who have cho­sen to be­come part of the so­lu­tion to some of the ed­u­ca­tion chal­lenges that stu­dents in Qatar face.” The lun­cheon was also at­tended by dis­tin­guished golfer José Maria Olaz­a­bal, win­ner of over 30 world­wide pro­fes­sional golf tour­na­ments. Olaz­a­bal is co-founder with ten­nis cham­pion Rafel Nadal, of the Olaz­a­bal & Nadal In­vi­ta­tional, a char­i­ta­ble foun­da­tion that aims at com­bat­ing so­cial ex­clu­sion.
