Mahran Barahmeh never expected to be the head of the media department for the Ministry of Agriculture in Jericho. He was always interested in a career in media, but his family could not afford to send him to university.
As a result of his internship through the Partnerships with Youth (PWY) program, he gained the skills necessary for the position and is flourishing in his new job while connecting other Palestinian youth with crucial workforce skills.
After high school, Mahran worked as a farmer for several years to save money and eventually earned enough to attend the Modern University College of Ramallah. However, like many young Palestinians, he was unable to find employment in his chosen field after graduation and turned to work as a street vendor to earn a living.
IREX is pleased to announce the European Administrators Program. The program brings European head teachers and administrators to the United States to equip them with the skills needed to support minority, refugee, and immigrant youth in their communities.
