LOYAC is a locally-driven social enterprise that aims to improve employability and increase the personal agency of youth in Jordan, aged 16-24, so that they are able to lead independent, productive, and fulfilling professional and personal lives.
Youth in Jordan work and engage with others as empowered, self-motivated, and fulfilled individuals that nurture, inspire and effectively contribute to their families, their workplaces, and their communities.
Develop professional competence & life skills

LOYAC began in 2008 as a small, grassroots social enterprise run by volunteer women, who leveraged their connections to create summer jobs and internship opportunities for Jordanian youth to prepare them for the job market.
