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.
Jusoor is partnering with the Canadian Embassy in Lebanon, Talent Beyond Boundaries, and Unite Lebanon Youth Project to advance the Canadian Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP). This program matches skilled refugees with positions that Canadian employers need through existing immigration channels. Jusoor is facilitating the recruitment of a talented potential workforce in the construction and healthcare sectors.
