Dubai, UAE; February 20, 2017:  The UAE’s General Authority of Youth and Sports has partnered with the Alliance For Youth launched by Nestlé Middle East last year to bring together companies and other entities that can help young people in the region enhance their skills and develop their careers, and is now expanding to include Emaar Properties, ENGIE, LinkedIn, L’Oréal, Mohebi Logistics, Nielsen, Publicis Middle East and the American University in Dubai– with an objective of impacting 50,000 young adults through internships, graduate and training programs, and apprenticeships opportunities, and hiring 3,000 young people throughout Alliance partner companies by 2020.

“We know from experience in other regions that concerted collective efforts through partnerships and collaboration can amplify positive impact in society,” said Nestlé Middle East Chairman and CEO Yves Manghardt, who opened the event and sat in for a Questions and Answers sessions with students. “We are very happy that our objective to mobilize companies to contribute to young people is getting more and more realized everyday.”

The Conference included a panel discussion featuring Nestlé Human Resources Director Christine Geary; Nielson HR Director Tsitsi Mabeza; Hamad Eghdani – Director of Government Relations & Emiratisation at Emaar; and Tala Makhlouf, Director of Student Retention and Success and Special Assistant to the EVP at AUD.

Companies can join the Alliance for Youth by opening doors for internships, career trainings and career advising for youth.
