Overview

At INJAZ Lebanon, we invest in our youth, Lebanon’s brightest future and strongest hope for nationwide development and economic growth.

INJAZ Lebanon, a non-profit organization, aims to educate and prepare Lebanon’s youth to become qualified and successful employees and entrepreneurs in a growing regional and global economy. We actively engage the business community through our volunteer based model that allows independent professionals and corporate volunteers, to share their experiences through the implementation of our varied educational programs that focus on entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy.

Since our foundation in 2001, over 60,000 youths, aged 10 to 24 years old, have participated in INJAZ Lebanon’s hands-on training programs spanning Beirut, Mount Lebanon, Bekaa Valley, South of Lebanon and North Lebanon, thanks to the generous support of over 2,500 volunteer professionals. By building bridges between educational institutions and the business sector, we are able to equip youth with the skills and mindsets required to become the business leaders and entrepreneurs that stimulate their communities.
