Neom Introduces a Program for Youth in Saudi Arabia

Neom, the developer of a mega futuristic city in Saudi Arabia, has launched a specialist training scheme to empower a new generation of students.

The programme, which is being launched through its corporate social responsibility unit, Neom CSR, targets 600 male and female students, including high school students from Neom and Tabuk area and freshman students from the University of Tabuk.

The eight-week programme aims to assist young people to pursue their college education with confidence and prepare them for impactful careers post-graduation, said a statement from Neom.

It is being organized in partnership with KEYSS Project (Knowledge Exchange for Youth Supporting Society) and in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, the National Program for Community Development (Tanmiah) and non-governmental organizations.

According to Neom, the initiative has been established to enable students in the NEOM and Tabuk region to reach their full potential.

“With the support of 50 teachers and advisors, the students will be guided to the most relevant and sought-after majors that align with the future job market and encouraged to explore their personal strengths through interactive meetings that foster self-learning,” said a company spokesman.

As part of the initiative, a guidebook on tactical decision-making on the professional, academic and personal levels will be distributed to participants, he stated.

According to him, the empowerment of a new generation through education is at the heart of Neom’s social responsibility efforts, in line with Saudi Vision 2030 and the Human Capability Development Programme.

Neom has launched several educational initiatives since its inception, including a scholarship program with 379 beneficiaries to date, English language programs and career-building opportunities, he added.
