The President of Yarmouk University, Prof. Zeidan Kafafi, discussed with the Deputy Director of the British Council, Mai Abu Hamdiya, possible means of cooperation and the activation of "Raseed 21", a program that is set to enhance flexibility for meeting challenges on campus.

At the beginning of the meeting, Kafafi stressed the importance of strengthening cooperation with the British Council, which stands as one of the bodies concerned with preparing young people and providing them with various skills that qualify them to engage in the labor market. He also expressed university students’ need to be familiar with language and computer skills, which represent the gateway for various employment opportunities. Then he emphasized Yarmouk's readiness to embrace the program proposed by the Council, namely “Raseed 21,” which aims at increasing knowledge stock, developing skills, and strengthening absorptive capacity of students.

In her turn, Abu Hamdiyah indicated that the Council seeks to implement "Raseed 21" program, which is funded by the European Union, at Yarmouk University during the upcoming period. She explained that the methodology of such a program is that the Jordanian youth carries an ample stock of capabilities despite the challenges surrounding them. Young people, she mentioned, were able to avoid the dangers of slipping in non-constructive or violent paths thanks to this stockpile. Therefore, the activities of “Raseed 21” are to enhance the flexibility of students and prepare them to face life challenges in the post-college life period rather than getting stuck in the “waiting period” and other related issues.

The Director of "Raseed 21," Diala Al-Smadi, said that the program includes three tracks: active citizens, building up the stock of young people by addressing the depletion of flexibility arising from the waiting phase, and the path of positive stories. She explained that the mechanism of work in such a program must include an active citizenship for building skills, capabilities, follow-up, and guidance during the development of projects prepared by students.
