The Employment unit works to support youth placement into jobs by developing mechanisms to link jobseekers to employment, providing youth with the awareness, skills and experience to successfully transition into employment, and working with employers to enhance youth hiring practices.

Silatech supports youth with access to job opportunities, vocational training, and career guidance. It also provides innovative technological platforms, builds the capacity of local institutions, and connects employers and young job seekers through services such as the Ta3mal initiative, and various training programs.


In 2012, Silatech and Microsoft launched to helps youth and job seekers find support to transition into the world of work. Available in Arabic, English and French, the online platform offers online access to career guidance, soft-skills, e-learning as well as jobs and internships opportunities and entrepreneurship training.


In 2011, Silatech partnered with Mindmill to launch Tamheed, Silatech’s career guidance program. The program includes online psychometric assessments, a career advising framework, and training and capacity building for career advisors. Available in Arabic, English and French, youth workers can be trained to become Tamheed advisors in less than a week, creating a large pool of certified advisors offering personalized advice based on scientific reports. Employers can use the results of psychometric assessments in selecting candidates, and match skills with the right jobs and internships.


Train-to-place programs provide the full-cycle of youth training and job placement, usually in specific industries or sectors. We work with training providers to equip youth with the technical skills that employers are looking to fill the entry-level vacancies they have.
