We are not currently accepting applications. Please check this page for updates.

The Nahdhat Shabab Project is a training program funded by the U.S. Department of State and administered by AMIDEAST. The Nahdhat Shabab Project will train 500 Yemeni youth in vocational, professional, and employability skills. The Project’s trainees will gain real-world experience in improving their communities and stimulating critical economic recovery.

The Nahdhat Shabab Project coordinates with numerous local partners and other diverse community actors through Community Advisory Boards (CABs); links 100 youth to mentors in their communities; and enables the youth trainees to become involved in 20 community rebuilding, restoration and recovery projects at selected community spaces.

The Nahdhat Shabab Project has already launched training for over 250 new trainees in mid-2018! See AMIDEAST Yemen Facebook page for updates on trainees, activities, and other announcements for the Nahdhat Shabab Project.
