The Zaheb initiative was launched by Agthia in partnership with INJAZ UAE, a member of Junior Achievement Worldwide 2015 with the aim of developing workforce readiness skills for Emirati youth in Abu-Dhabi and Al-Ain.
“Zaheb”, the local dialect Arabic word for “ready”, consists of five international business programs, including Zaheb Head Start Day, the exclusive and first time event of its kind in the capital, offering cutting-edge work readiness activities benefiting 2000 Emirati students each year.
The business training activities included in Zaheb support educators’ careers development program and respond to labor market needs in Abu Dhabi. The initiative also reinforces the role of private sector companies and mentors in shaping the future workforce. Agthia will mobilize its team to participate as mentors, along with 200 other private professionals who wish to make an impact in their communities.
