“Capacitating youth with foundational skills which increase their entrepreneurship or employability prospects in agricultural and tourism sectors”

Youth JO – Level Up, launched in 2022 is a three-year project that aims to enhance the economic participation of youth in Jordan through upskilling, job placement and matchmaking, and by developing their entrepreneurial capabilities. It is designed and managed via an integrated approach that capacitates youth to overcome their barriers, work together with their communities to stimulate self-employment, and use technical and soft skills to their advantage in ensuring self-employment in agricultural and tourism value chains.

Project will achieve its goals through providing relevant training, coaching, mentoring, internship and job match making in the in agricultural and tourism. It will grant youth the needed soft skills that support their employment in the targeted sector. Furthermore, youth with entrepreneurial potential are to be trained and coached to set up their own income generating businesses giving them the opportunity to compete for receiving a seed fund allowing them to take their ideas to the next level.

Strategically aligned with the Jordanian youth employment priorities and Skills-Jobs nexus cooperation mandate of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Jordan, Youth Jo Level up targets 1500 youth, age between 18- 35.  50% of targeted youth are female while 20% are vulnerable youth. Targeted locations include Jerash, Ajloun, Amman, Madaba, Balqa and the golden tourism triangle (Aqaba, Petra and Wadi Rum).

Project is funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands in Jordan and developed by a consortium led by Partners for Good (PfG) in partnership with LMNS for Social Development (LMNS), Advance Consulting (AC) through Fal for Consulting and Management Services.
