Yspot launches internship program
Yspot, a platform designed to connect youth with organizations, launches bespoke internship programs. Aiming to not only inspire but empower the next generation of socially-engaged leaders, Yspot is set to provide the UAE with supportive and meaningful work-based internship programs between the youth and businesses.
The Yspot platform hosts internship programs which support the learning track of students for organizations to easily manage. As part of the mission to support students in future career choices, Yspot has taken the platform a step further by partnering with industry leaders in the region to introduce work-based internships to students from all backgrounds and educational levels, and carefully analyses each candidate to match the right career opportunities with the right students. Through the platform, students have access to developing skills in a real-work environment, gain exposure to industry knowledge and expertise, and even build professional connections and networks.
Deena Habib, founder of Yspot pointed out that in an increasingly digital world, youth tend to learn new things in a digital format, but they need to apply this learning in a space that truly matters; the real world.
“Yspot wants to address the elephant in the room - the modern-day method of connecting with youth is outdated, and there is a real gap of career paths for millennials,” she added. “At Yspot, our mission is to be as forward-thinking as possible and to nurture innovative minds by encouraging collaboration between youth and businesses by designing the programs to be mutually beneficial with the aim of growing both parties. We not only reward youth through exciting channels, but empower them to also express their views and share their knowledge with organizations.”
The Yspot youth program will enroll students between the ages of 16-18 in bespoke leadership and professional growth collaborative internships within relevant organizations. These programs are developed with the integration of school partners and organizations, and are not only designed to bring the two worlds together but are also focused on supporting the well-being of every student.
The corporate programs that Yspot offer are a unique experience as the organizations get to communicate directly with their youth target audience via brand advocacy programs, internship opportunities, community discussions and surveys.
