Community Youth Mapping
Public private partnerships are one of
the key focus areas of the Reform process in Jordan. In line with
the Education Reform for a Knowledge Economy (ERfKE), PBYRC in
partnership with Academy for Educational Development (AED) and
USAID ERfKE Support Project are implementing a project that encourages
schools to career.
PBYRC works with groups of young people
in the South, North and middle regions on Community Youth Mapping
(CYM). CYM is an innovative and youth friendly technique in which
youth can help identify and document services in a peer to peer
approach in their respective communities. This
technique will aim to raise awareness of what is available and
accessible to youth and identifies the support of the private
sector in providing young people with internships.
The youth will utilize various research
approaches, and will be able to identify the companies in their
areas as well as existing services for youth. The CYM works closely
with the Ministry of Education including teachers and students
in order to ensure sustainability in the long run and ownership.
