How does the Young Thinkers Program help my child or student?

Tailored for Emirati and Arab youth ages 15-35 with free and customized resources available in both Arabic and English, the Young Thinkers Program designed the content to align with the regional context, the demands of higher education and the jobs of the future.

Who offers these courses?

To create this program, the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education (AGFE) partnered with Arizona State University, a world-class university, recognized as the most innovative and fastest-growing research university in the United States.
