The Center of Continuing Education (CCE) Sponsors LOYAC's KON Program

This summer, the Center for Continuing Education (CCE) at AUK sponsored LOYAC's social entrepreneurship program KON in partnership with Babson College. Over the course of a month-from the end of July to the end of August-CCE & LOYAC worked together in merging both their visions by helping advance Kuwait's youth. The KON program had 40 students (ages 12-16) and aimed at teaching the youth about teamwork, business development, and creating ideas to help solve social problems.

Throughout the month-long program, CCE arranged facilities and day-to-day management for the whole program, ensuring its success. Each week, the students worked together on their business ideas and prepared for the final week of the program. During the final week, all the business ideas were evaluated by a judging panel. CCE director, Buthaina Al-Khubaizi, served as one of the judges, and helped give input to the students on the feasibility of the ideas and how to improve or implement them.

While talking about the importance of their partnership with LOYAC for KON, Al-Khubaizi explained, "Through the program, we start as young as 12 years old, where we allow the participants to get to know themselves early, explore their entrepreneurial skills and challenge their thinking, while being exposed to various inspiring businesses, mentors and trainers. Self-exploration is a journey and it is the most critical skill to start an infinite path of learning". This collaboration with LOYAC is in alignment with CCE's vision, mission, and values of creating partnerships and collaborations to develop the Kuwaiti society. CCE was established in 2004 and offers an array of workshops, courses, and programs aimed to assist in the personal and professional development of individuals and groups within the public and private sectors. Course offerings are specifically tailored to meet the needs of their clients, whether they are independent groups or corporations.
