Amman, Jordan: The Jordan Olympic Committee’s vision for sport to play a role in the lives of all Jordanians has been boosted by an agreement signed that will see thousands of young people enjoy the Olympic Values and Education Programme.

The JOC will work closely with America-Mideast Educational and Training Services (Amideast) to educate graduates from the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Programme, which is financed from the USA Foreign Ministry, so they can share information to the (Access) students in more than 40 schools on the values of sport through specially tailored workshops that will form part of the Youth Exchange and Study Programme between Jordan and the USA.

The first workshop will start on Thursday and last for four days in the Amideast headquarters, where participants will be provided with practical sessions and lectures on the Olympic Values under the supervision of Narin HajjTass, Knowledge, Training and Education Department Manager.

On signing the agreement, Lana Al Jaghbeer, JOC Secretary General, said: "This agreement will help us spread the importance of the Olympic Values in our everyday lives.”

Dana Shoqom, Amideast Regional Manager, added: "We are pleased to start a new long term partnership the JOC, which aims to empower Jordanian youth through our programmes."

The Amideast is an American nonprofit organisation that works in international activities in education, training and developing in the Middle East and North Africa.
