Overview of the Initiative:

The "Monjez [Achiever] Initiative" is an initiative aimed to qualify students for the labor market, and build their practical skills through (micro-internships) in small businesses. This is accomplished by the clients communicating with the staff of the College of Computer and Information Systems through the Achiever platform to ask for digital or training services to be carried out by the college students under the supervision of the academic staff members, either as a community contribution for a long term period or a paid investment for a short term period.

Objectives of the Initiative:
