Aims to help the Egyptian youth to choose the right career, begin setting their goals in life, let them gain new ethics and values and help them in achieving the balance in their lives.
Through the past years, IEEE CUSB has worked on developing the school students technically and personally through a program titled "Try Engineering". We have achieved notable progress in this field, that’s why we decided to create our new project Youth Development.
Youth Development is Project under the supervision of IEEE Cairo University Student branch, totally managed by well-trained students and eligible to present real role models and present IEEE CUSB
The career, the future is everyone’s critical destiny, as if you choose the wrong path you can’t change it or the probability of having the chance to change it to the right one is so small.
Some of us are lucky, either they have succeeded in making the right choice or they had the chance of getting in the right career in the middle of their path.
Our youth faces this critical destiny. They face the problem of choosing the right career that is suitable for what they really like and what they are good at.
It starts when the student in the secondary stage has to choose the suitable college for himself/herself and for his/her future life. Some students don’t know how the faculties look like in the real life; few know that but the most don’t.
Building up balanced persons by teaching to them technical and non-technical courses.

o Arab Successful Figures ( 10 Minutes at the end of each session)
Through these 10 minutes we will talk about a successful person who has an Arabic origin and who could be considered as a role model due to his positive impact on the world. These sessions are titled "I am an Arab" or "أنا عربى" in Arabic
We held 4 rounds which began in 2010 and the last one was in July 2011
In these rounds we included different sessions about
Introduction to Electronics:
o 555 Timer, Audio Amplifier Fan Circuit, Competition(Traffic Light Circuit), Where to buy components
o Photography Skills
o Communication Skills
o Time Management
o Social Media
