EFE is the leading youth employment network in the Middle East and North Africa.

Despite the region’s rapidly growing youth population in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, employers consider access to talent a top business challenge.
Companies are hesitant to hire young workers – even when they have the right skills. Many youth are unwilling to pursue all of their employment options, or do not know how to due to the gap between traditional education and labor market demand.
Most people see a crisis. We see an opportunity.


Our vision :

When youth have the hope and dignity of employment, they can build a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.

Our mission:

Empower youth in Saudi Arabia with demand-driven skills that lead to employment, dignity and hope.


Empower youth potential
Earn trust
Create change

Our team is dedicated to providing assistance, training, expertise and networks of support to implement youth employment programs.

Education For Employment In Saudi Arabia was established in June 2016 as the latest affiliate in EFE’s network across the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region. EFE is the leading youth employment organization in the kingdom that empowers unemployed youth by preparing and connecting them to tangible job opportunities with its vast employer partner network.
