Dereja Academy' 19

Class of 2019 was a success not only because almost all of our graduates have found employment but also, by the end of the program, they knew what they wanted and how to make it happen. Our academy program focuses on preparing our fellows for careers and not just jobs. After an intensive few months, Dereja fellows move from “please give me a job” to “they’ll be lucky to have me”.

The 2019 year was a blue print that confirmed the necessity of the program and the impact it can have on the lives of young people.
