Students of ‘Ithra’ Program Represent the Bahrain Youth Award

Students of ‘Ithra’ Program Represent the Kingdom of Bahrain in El Hassan Youth Award

Six students from Al Mabarrah Al Khalifia Foundation’s ‘Ithra’ training program participated in the “Adventurous Journeys” program, organized by El Hassan Youth Award in Jordan. The program took place over a period of six days, from the 14th until 19th of August 2017.

During the trip, students were able to engage in a variety of activities that encouraged their adventurous spirits. They participated in a series of challenges that required physical effort, as well as enhanced communication skills among team members towards achieving their mutual objectives.

The program also included a visit to an automobile museum and other archaeological sites such as the Roman Theater, Amman Citadel, the ancient city of Petra, Ajloun Castle and the Dead Sea. Students also completed a demanding journey through mountain climbing and touring the Wadi Rum desert.

Providing this unique opportunity to ‘Ithra’ students comes as part of MKF’s strategy to encourage the spirit of adventure and discovery, in addition to the development of their sense of independence and confidence.

Furthermore, the El Hassan Youth Award and MKF’s Youth Enrichment Program ‘Ithra’ share mutual vision and goals aimed towards developing the youth, enhancing their abilities and encouraging them to reaching their full potential.

El Hassan Youth Award scheme was founded in 1984. Initially a pilot scheme in the Amman Baccalaureate School, the El Hassan Youth Award was inspired by the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, which was established in the United Kingdom in 1956.
