The U.S. Mission in Iraq announces an open competition for eligible organizations to submit proposals to implement The English Language Investment and Training for Economic Success. This project will support 100 university and vocational students ages 22-25 for a one-year mentorship program. The program’s objective is to improve the ability of local youth to find employment outside the public sector, including through entrepreneurship opportunities. The program is founded as a result of the obstacles faced by job seekers entering the labor market. The program mainly focuses on developing human capital through organizing professional training courses provided by qualified trainers. The program elements will include recruitment of participants, English language classes (general English and business English), computer skills, general management skills (including, but not limited to general administration, human resources, marketing, finance), practicing of the management skills learned through shadowing in private sector settings, and a networking event and workshop to match participants with local private enterprises in Baghdad. Subject to the availability of funds, the Embassy expects to award one award for up to $ 300,000.00 to the selected program implementer to carry out the English Language Investment and Training for Economic Success program.
