Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority Will Stage Youth Programme

The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) will stage a summer youth programme in order to introduce young emirates to the tourism industry and career offers.  The programme will take place between 12 July and 6 August and there will be training every day between 9am and 3 pm.  More than seventy students between the ages of fifteen and twenty, including those with special needs, will be offered complimentary spots in the programme.

Director of Tourism Standards for ADTA said their research shows their nationals have little understanding of the various career options in the industry and the camp is one initiative that will educate people about this.  One of Abu Dhabi’s most important business and leisure venues is the Armed Forces Officers Club, and they will participate in the programme.
