(July – 2018) Believing in the instrumental role of youth in national development, Bank of Jordan co-sponsored the National Youth Conference that was organized by the National Forum for Awareness and Development.
The conference, launched at the Jordanian Senate upon the directives of His Majesty King Abdullah II, aims to engage young people in public life and enhance their contribution towards the advancement of the Kingdom.
Under the first phase of the conference, a total of 90 students from across Jordanian universities will be trained as coordinators for the conference in their respective universities. Several other workshops (brainstorming sessions) will also be held for focus groups to discuss national and high-priority youth issues.
It is worth noting that Bank of Jordan is keen to back such initiatives that aim to increase youth participation in their local communities through bringing fresh vision and ideas into public debate.
