To mitigate the impact of the difficult socio-economic circumstances facing youth in Gaza, IOCC has started implementing, in partnership with Peace Winds Japan and funding from Government of Japan, a three-year program to provide soft and technical/vocational skills-based training in non-conventional professions that will enable youth to find jobs and earn income.
The program targets unemployed youth (18-25 years of age). IOCC is running three technical/vocational training centers (CTTC), one in each of the most disadvantaged governorates of Gaza including Rafah, Khan Younis and Gaza North governorates.

- Entrepreneurship Training.
- E-Commerce Training.
- Interpersonal skills Training.
The training centers will offer a five-month training course per a five-month semester duration. Each five-month course-duration will include a three-month period which will be dedicated for providing enrolled youth with theoretical and practical technical/vocational training in the related subjects. Furthermore, during this period, the enrolled youth will benefit from soft skills training in entrepreneurship, career counseling and placement services to help trainees find employment and/or initiate their own start-ups.
The remaining two-month period in each semester will be dedicated for enrollment of youth in internships within local businesses and industries, to transfer theoretical and practical skills for the subject market-driven non-conventional professions; namely, IT and mobile phone maintenance, solar panels and clean energy systems maintenance, as well as, multi-media and mass communication production.
