ANTEA Cement in partnership with Young Professionals Network, during this summer organized the “Empowering Youth Professionally” program. The program consisted in the soft skills training and internships for young students from Thumana and Borizana high schools. The internships took place in businesses and non-profit organizations.
The scope of this pilot program, funded by ANTEA Cement, was to introduce the youngsters from rural areas to vocational and personal training, in the mean time to raise awareness of their role as active citizens. During this journey, the selected students had the opportunity to be introduced and meet with youth-related institutions such as: National Youth Agency and Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO).
During the program the students had the opportunity to visit several museums in Tirana and also visited TUMO Technology Centre, which informed them about the opportunities and the scholarships offered for the youngsters.
The closing ceremony of the program was also attended by the Minister of State for Youth and Children Bora Muzhaqi. She expressed her gratitude for businesses that want to contribute to the communities where they operate, affirming the Government support for such initiatives.
