Successful U!

On November 1, 2010 AMIDEAST and Bank of Beirut launched the “Successful U!” partnership as part of the bank’s U for Youth program. Bank of Beirut and AMIDEAST share a passion for investing in the youth in Lebanon. This partnership allows us to join forces in providing professional development programs to young adults ages 18 - 25.
