Young ADIPEC programme

Every year ADIPEC arranges Young ADIPEC programme designed to engage with UAE youths. The programme is held under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development Community.

Since its creation back in 2013, the Young ADIPEC programme has received praise and recognition from across the oil and gas industry.  Aimed at High School students aged between 14 – 17 years old, Young ADIPEC is designed to win the hearts and minds of today’s youth and highlight the wealth and diversity of career opportunities in the sector.  Over 700 students from across the UAE have passed through the programme since its inception in 2013 and our aim is to grow this number in 2016 as we prepare to engage and encourage students to explore the best in the industry has to offer.
