ATHENS (5 April 2023) – Envolve Entrepreneurship (https://greece.envolveglobal.org) and SAP Hellas (https://www.sap.com) announce the launch of the “Restart Your Future” program (https://bit.ly/restart_your_future) to help displaced young adults aged 18-30 from around the world gain critical interpersonal and digital skills, mentorship, and job opportunities. On April 11 at 16:00, Envolve and SAP will hold a free online informational session to share opportunities in the labor market and how “Restart your Future” can support the professional goals and dreams of young refugees and other displaced individuals.
Facilitated by the Community Foundation Ireland, “Restart your Future” seeks to support the reskilling and upskilling of displaced young adults, aiming to mitigate the digital gap between employers’ needs for skills and knowledge regarding tech-related jobs, or any other job which requires tech literacy, and the skills of young refugees and migrants seeking professional advancement and equal opportunities in a foreign country. The program includes courses, workshops, empowerment sessions, and mentoring by SAP employees, offering a holistic approach to training and skills development as well as sharing labor market trends, the hiring processes and required documentation.
Those interested in participating can find more information about the program “Restart Your Future” in the following link https://bit.ly/restart_your_future and reserve their spot in this link https://bit.ly/ryfregister. Participation to the program is limited, with a first come first served selection.
“Education, reskilling and upskilling are the keys to unlocking change. Together, they create a ripple effect that addresses many social and environmental issues beyond economic growth,” said Rosie Tsela, Business Manager CSR & University Alliances Country Lead Education at SAP Hellas.
“In the demanding digital age, we are living in, it is more important than ever to provide support and resources to those who have been displaced from their homes. By equipping them with the necessary tools and knowledge, we can help them to not only rebuild their lives, but also be able to contribute to the communities they now call home,” said Alexandros Nousias, Executive Director of Envolve Entrepreneurship. “We are honored to work with aligned partners such as SAP Hellas, who put people at the center and are open to transferring their knowledge and technology towards an impactful initiative.”
The program is open to all displaced youth across the world, aged 18-30, and will be conducted online in English over four months by Envolve and SAP executives. The informational session on Tuesday, 11 April at 16:00 will provide an overview of the program and workshop topics, as well as labor market trends and the latest developments from the tech scene. The info day will take place in English and is open to social impact leaders and displaced youth across the world. Register to save your spot via Zoom at https://bit.ly/ryflaunch.
