KidZania Kuwait, the child-centric city, hosted a graduation ceremony for The Green Unit students from Kuwait English School (KES), for successfully completing the first Work Experience Program at KidZania.

The newly introduced program aims to provide students with the opportunity to exercise different life skills, such as dealing with customers, giving feedback, and learning about the practicality of the work environment.

The Work Experience Program came in line with KidZania’s philosophy to help students gain the skills set needed to contribute to making a positive impact in the world around them. It was accommodated upon KES’s request and in line with KidZania’s strong relationship with the educational sector, including both private and public schools across Kuwait. It also manifests KidZania’s role in education by helping students learn about the practicality of the real world.

The program was very well received by KES’s management, the students and their parents, which fueled the decision to continue the program with a different batch of students in the future.

Vice President of the Leisure and Entertainment Department at M.H. Alshaya Co., Fernando Medroa said: “As a community-involved brand, this program came in sync with our global philosophy: to empower children and students to earn the skills set they need to make a positive impact in the world around us.”

He added: “This program is also a great embodiment of how corporates, schools and the community can all work together to support children and students to achieve their full potential.”

The Work Experience Program helped students develop and implement their social, intellectual and professional skills in a fun and diverse work environment such as KidZania. It also gave students the space to interact with different customers, while allowing them the opportunity to get out of their comfort zone and practice important social skills that are inevitable to their success in the future.
