Economic Opportunities for Jordanian Youth (INJAZ)

INJAZ implements an array of programs to inspire Jordanian youth and prepare them to become contributing members of their society, and succeed in a global economy.

Economic Opportunities for Jordanian Youth (INJAZ)

In partnership with Save the Children, USAID launched INJAZ for the Creation of Economic Opportunities for Jordanian Youth in 1999, providing financial support for the first phase of the program (1999-2004). INJAZ means "Achievement" in Arabic. The objective was to enhance the skills of youth and increase their participation in the economy to help bridge the existing gap between the knowledge acquired through education and the skills required by the job market. It was later re-launched in 2001 as an independent non-profit Jordanian organization under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah.

USAID has renewed its partnership with INJAZ for a third phase through a five year grant that covers the years 2009-2014, in the amount of $10 million. INJAZ places strong emphasis on creating and sustaining partnerships with donors, the private sector, not-for-profit organizations, educational institutions, line ministries and other stakeholders at the national, regional and international levels. INJAZ brings various capacity building courses to classrooms in public schools in Jordan in full coordination with the Ministry of Education (MOE).
