Na2onal Supervisory  Group  


What we  do   Leadership   Program:   A   program   aimed   at   establishing   the   basic   concepts  of  leadership  development  in  the  youth.    In  this  phase   you   will   be   introduced   to   a   pracEcal   team   experience,   gain   access   to   a   global   network   and   engage   in   pracEcal   hard   skills   development.       Global   Volunteer   Program:   This   program   seeks   to   create   cross-­‐ cultural   posiEve   impact   through   sending   youths   on   social   and   community   development   projects   which   lead   to   self   development   and   skills-­‐enhancement.   The   program   allows   Jordanian   youths   to   volunteer  abroad  as  well  as  bring  in  interna2onal  students  to  engage   with  the  local  communi2es  in  Jordan.     Global  Internship  Program:  This  program  aims  to  match  the  needs  of  the   market  through  sourcing  global  talent  possessing  specific  skills  and  global   mindsets   which   are   less   easily   accessible   in   the   domes2c   market.   This   benefits  local  companies  in  terms  of  providing  interna2onal  perspecEves   and   diversity   while   the   interns   (students   and   recent   graduates)   develop   themselves  both  personally  and  professionally.

8 Our  AcEviEes    

NaEonal  Project  –  iLeap

Jordan Youth  to  Business  

Why  Jordan  Youth  to  Business?   The   number   of   young   people   is   increasing   rapidly.   Countries   are   struggling   to   adapt   their   workforce   due   to   the   growing   gap   between   the   skills   of   unemployed   workers   and   the   skills   needed   to   perform   the   jobs   of   today   and   tomorrow.   Young   people   are   currently   facing   inequality  in  access  to  the  corporate  sector.       Besides,   as   the   dynamics   of   the   corporate   industry   has   increased   over   the   years,   fresh   ideas   from   young   people   are   needed   to   maintain   industry   movement.   We   believe   that   the   youth   aspira2on  will  be  a  big  contribu2on  to  the  corporate  sector.  The  mutual  rela2onship  between   widespread   unemployment   and   the   youth   aspira2on   led   to   the   idea   of   organizing   a   Jordan   Youth  to  Business  forum  that  aims  to  facilitate  communica2on  between  Jordanian  youth  and   the  corporate  sector.       Youth  to  Business  has  been  organized  in  several  countries  in  the  MENA  region  such  as  Bahrain,   Egypt,   Morocco,   Tunisia   and   Lebanon.     Youth   to   Business   is   a   global   brand   which   is   trusted   by   top   interna2onal   corpora2ons   such   as   Microsom   which   par2cipated   in   Egypt   and   Aramex   which  par2cipated  in  Bahrain.  Therefore,  we  believe  that  this  year  is  the  2me  for  is  to  bring   Youth  to  Business  to  Jordan.       When?   February  2013       What?   Youth  to  Business  is  a  pla]orm  of  special  dialogue  between  representa2ves  of  the  youth  and   the   business   world   on   specific   issues   in   Jordan   and   their   corresponding   solu2ons.   Youth   to   Business  is  a  one  day  event  where  a  space  is  created  for  all  delegates  and  guests  to  connect   and   discuss   a   specific   ques2on   and   other   related   topics.   This   event   is   an   evolu2on   of   our   annual  event,  the  Youth  Leadership  Forum  which  has  been  held  in  previous  years.  

12 Me  being  a  Jordanian  young  man,  living  in  Al-­‐Mafraq,  studying  in  Irbid  and   now   teaching   Arabic   in   Warsaw-­‐Poland   I   am   living   the   ulCmate   internaConal   experience   by   working   with   people   from   10   different   countries,  learning  about  their  cultures  and  teaching  them  about  mine.   What   AIESEC   have   given   me   can   only   be   described   as   a   life   changing   experience.”      

Nezar Al-­‐OV  –  Internship  in  Poland   “That's  my  second  internship  through  AIESEC  and  there  would  not  have  a   beVer  opCon  for  my  first  Cme  in  Jordan.   AIESEC   offers   opportuniCes   in   companies   which   are   aligned   to   its   values   and  aims  for  a  beVer  reality  not  only  for  the  country,  but  for  the  world.   I'm   discovering   not   only   Jordan   and   its   culture,   but   myself   as   a   professional,  helping  to  improve  the  company  and  my  skills.”  

Raisa Jorge  –  Intern  from  Brazil   “Organizing   the   summer   camp   with   AIESEC   Amman   was   an   enriching   experience!   Working   with   people   from   Jordan   made   me   experience   the   Arab  culture  at  its  best.  It  was  really  special  to  see  how  the  kids  already   learned  to  share  all  their  knowledge  as  well  as  their  sweets.  Something  we   in  the  west  can  definitely  learn  from!”    

Hanne  Van  ‘t  klooster  –  Intern  from  the  Netherlands   “I   spent   3   months   in   Nairobi,   Kenya   working   for   an   NGO   in   the   field   of   environmental  sustainability.  It  was  the  experience  of  a  lifeCme,  I  got  the   chance   to   see   magnificent   unique   places,   I   made   friends   with   people   from   all  around  the  globe,  got  exposed  to  an  enCrely  different  business  culture,   and   most   importantly,   I   learned   that   every   person   has   potenCal   for   something,   and   that   we   can   do   anything   we   envision,   if   we   go   out   and   create  our  own  opportuniCes.”  

Rama Nimri  –  Internship  in  Quenia   "Throughout   my   1   year   experience   in   AIESEC,   I   have   held   2   different   leadership   posiCons   that   helped   me   explore   how   I   can   impact   people,   and   my  ability  to  strategically  lead  a  team,  and  by  working  with  the  market,  I   equipped  myself  with  a  set  of  skills  and  values  that  will  enable  me  to  bring   posiCve   impact   to   my   community,   and   benefit   me   on   the   professional   level."  

Mudaffar Shoubaki  –  Member  of  AIESEC  Jordan

13 “Upon  opening  Discover  Jordan  I  had  a  lot  of  obstacles  to  face  in  a   well-­‐established  market,  not  to  menCon  begin  owned  and  operated   by  a  foreign  women.    Many  people  told  me  it  will  not  work  but  we   prevailed,  to  become  a  successful  tour  company.      All  of  this  could  not  have  been  possible  without  the  hard  work  of   each  and  every  AIESEC  interns;  they  really  are  the  finest  and  most   producCve  members  of  staff  I  have  come  across  in  all  my  years  of   business.”   Laura  Leader  -­‐Rihani     CEO  –  Founder  of  Discover  Jordan  Tours  

“As a  partner  of  AIESEC  in  Jordan,  we  are  able  to  feel  the  energy  of  a   truly   youth-­‐led   organizaCon,   and   we   have   been   able   to   develop   extremely  talented,  innovaCve  and  responsible  leader,  who  can  add   great  value  to  any  organizaCon  in  Jordan.”  

“For us   the   benefits   of   partnering   with   AIESEC   are   clear,   their   program   of   development   and   learning   through   the   AIESEC   experience   is   unique   in   Jordan   and   across   the   region.   This   means  that  AIESEC  is  able  to  provide  high  quality,  hard  working   and   proacCve   individuals   that   we   can   not   find   anywhere   else.   Our   partnership   is   based   on   mutual   value   and   this   is   why   we   will  conCnue  to  invest  in  the  relaConship  over  the  long  term.”  

“With today’s  world  globalizaCon  and  growing  challenges  facing  the   youth  AIESEC  is  uniquely  and  conCnuously  dedicated  in  empowering   the   youth   with   the   organizaConal   skills   and   experience   needed   to   be   tomorrow’s   leaders   in   a   world   of   peace   throughout   dialogue   and   cultural  exchange.”   Mr.  Walid  Tawil,  Chairman,  AIESEC  Jordan  Supervisory  Group
