Journeys Within Our Community

Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

Young people aged 15-30 make up roughly 30% of Cambodia’s population, but many youth still lack the skills needed to be successful in the workplace.  At JWOC, we believe that by partnering with youth and investing in their education, we can close this gap and help them fulfill their potential.  

Our Programs

Scholarship Program

We award scholarships that enable gifted youth from low-income families to attend University in Siem Reap by paying for their tuition fees and textbooks. Additionally, at JWOC’s purpose-built Learning Center, we focus on developing soft skills and building capacity to overcome the challenges youth may face in reaching their goals.

Better Futures Program

We give current high school students and those who have recently graduated the guidance they need to set or reach their future goals. The students graduate from the program equipped with the skills, knowledge and motivation needed to succeed and make informed decisions about whether they want to pursue further education, vocational training, or work.

Youth Leadership Program

We also provide a platform for motivated change-makers to tackle social issues to improve their confidence and increase their level of civic engagement. We strengthen the ability of young people to advance human rights and development issues across health, education, and employment.
