Aie Skill 2.0 – Relaunching Public Workshops

As 2018 unfolds, we are proud to relaunch our Public Workshops to further empower youth in Lebanon with the needed skills and knowledge to succeed in their lives. Accordingly, we’re aligning our training topics with the 10 skills for the 4th Industrial Revolution (a term coined by the World Economic Forum) as well as on employ-ability and entrepreneurship skills. All of those feed into our overall work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) specifically goals 4 (Quality Education) and 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth).

To top it all, we’re taking our workshops to whole new level as we are hosting our public workshops at the AUB’s Continuing Education Center, a forerunner in continuing education and professional development in Lebanon and the region.

Our workshops will take place every second Thursday (ie twice a month) from 5:30pm till 7:30pm at AUB CEC and will include a 90 minutes training followed by 30 minutes of networking coffee to help build connections and friendships among our participants and trainers.

So to give you a sneak peak on the topics we’ll be offering, they’ll contain (in alphabetical order):

  • Acing The Interview
  • Basics of a Start Up
  • Business Canvas Model Development
  • Cognitive Flexibility
  • Complex Problem Solving
  • Coordinating with Others & Team Work
  • Creating A Pitch Deck for Investors

Aie Power 2013 Round – Apply Now!

Aie Power Poster - 2013


Aie Serve’s Team is proud to announce the 2013 round of the Aie Power Program!

We’ve realized that a lot of youth aspire to make positive change in their community, whether by spreading awareness about a certain issue, empowering community groups, serving the needy, advocating for a cause or lobbying for some policy change, yet in most cases they lack the needed skills, tools and resources to achieve what they dream of.

In this context, Aie Serve, as a youth empowerment organization and through the Aie Power Program, aims at empowering those youth by giving them the needed training, coaching and financial support to achieve their aspirations. So if you have a project idea in mind and would like to see it implemented with the funding, mentorship, networking and managerial support of Aie Serve then this is your chance!

This program is made possible by the generous support of the Corfu Foundation.
