Career Pathways for Refugee Talents

The MENA region faces significant youth unemployment, with Syrian refugees experiencing notably high joblessness (UNHCR, 2023) due to language barriers, limited educational opportunities, and job experience. Discriminatory employment policies in many host countries further compound such challenges(OCHA, 2019).

Upskilling initiatives have proliferated in the region, but with no clear evidence of securing youth employment. Our Career Development Program addresses this gap by directly connecting Syrian talent with income generation, building targeted skillsets, and creating innovative employment pipelines to bridge the opportunity gap.

Turning Ambitions into Achievements

Jusoor recognizes that Syrian talent is abundant and possesses the necessary skills and qualities. However, opportunities are scarce due to discriminatory employment policies and upskilling initiatives that do not always effectively result in income generation. In response, our Career Development Program focuses on two key objectives: (1) connecting talented Syrian youth with existing quality opportunities, and (2) innovating to create new job opportunities.

Soft skills are also identified as key for future job market readiness (World Bank, 2023). Thus, all our projects empower Syrian youth with targeted tools, skills, and knowledge to successfully launch and advance their careers.
