Fursaty Liltamayouz is an internship program that targets 165 ICT university graduates, who are placed in 176 JEI schools which implement JEI educational model. The program places each intern in one of the 176-targeted schools for eight months, acting as JEI’s arm in implementing its educational model at different levels according to the school’s need. During this period, the interns are provided with comprehensive soft and practical technical training packages, coupled with a structured mentorship support system, followed by a 4-month, on-the-job training in partner organizations. Throughout the internship period, the intern is required to engage in volunteering and community integration activities; During which they integrate ICT acquired skills, reaching a total of 30,000 people in different communities within Jordan.
