What We DO

DOT Jordan recognizes the power of collaboration in tackling Jordan’s digital divide. These partnerships empower youth and refugees with the skills they need to thrive in the digital economy, creating a more inclusive future for all.

DOT Jordan partnered with the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship to revitalize Knowledge Stations and address national technology and sustainability priorities, supporting #REACH2025. Through a collaboration with Global Affairs Canada, the Daring to Shift Project combated poverty by promoting digital jobs, social entrepreneurship, and community leadership. In partnership with UNICEF, the Digital Skills for Better Future Programme trained youth in ICT and employability skills. Additionally, our Digital Skills Programme with Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund helped refugees enter the digital economy. We also equipped orphans for job markets in partnership with Al-Aman Fund, funded by EDU-Syria.

DOT Jordan is mobilizing the potential of young people and the power of creative technology in Jordan.

We are addressing the twin challenges of youth unemployment and limited opportunities for sustainable economic growth in Jordan by supporting youth to solve pressing challenges in their local communities and establish sustainable social enterprises.

We’re doing this in three ways: by supporting young women and men to become Young Social Innovators and providing seed funding, networks, and mentors for their promising innovations; by establishing Digital Creativity Labs throughout the country; and by working with partners to improve Jordanian communities’ access to and learning in technology.


We work with young college and university graduates who have the passion and will to create positive social change.

DOT Jordan’s Young Social Innovators are equipped with the skills, motivation, and knowledge to create and apply digital solutions that solve pressing challenges, and have a positive impact in their community.

Supported by mentors, Young Social Innovators test and implement their social innovations and social enterprises in the Digital Creativity Labs, where they also offer digital skills and innovation training to the local community during their residency as Young Social Innovators.


We are showcasing a model to transform Jordan’s community-based Knowledge Stations into Digital Creativity Labs that use digital tools to inspire innovation, research, and solve pressing challenges in local communities.

Our goal is to refresh the Knowledge Stations as vibrant, creative, and digital community centers where entrepreneurs, innovators, mentors, start-ups, digital champions, and youth leaders can be supported in their endeavours.

Our Young Social Innovators work out of the Digital Creativity Labs, offering skills training to the local community, preparing the next generation of youth with foundational innovation, entrepreneurship and digital skills.


We partner with the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology to address national technology and sustainability priorities.

Our work together contributes towards bridging the digital divide by improving Jordanian communities’ access to and learning in technology, with a focus on inclusion of women and girls.

We are also convening NGOs working in the areas of youth and digital inclusion to collaborate on achieving the goals of #REACH2025, Jordan’s technology action plan.

Our programs provide young people with the opportunity to develop skills, deep knowledge, networks, and investment in their ideas. Key to the success of all of DOT’s young leaders is:

Experience-based learning DOT provides training to young people while they build their skills and abilities in and alongside local communities, business, institutions, and organizations.

Community impact young people put their knowledge to work, and gain a deep understanding of the needs, challenges, and what they can contribute to their local community.

Networks our young leaders are connected with peers, global networks, mentors, and network of partners who all play a role in growing their ideas.

Investment we believe in investing in young people as changemakers and innovators. DOT supports youth through stipends and linking them to job placements and seed funding.
