Nonetheless, on June 1, 2021, Jordan's Prime Minister, permitted the reopening of the sector, allowing the center to relaunch its prior in-person activities. The center is now scheduled to offer demand-driven training that aligns with the safety regulations and social distancing requirements to around 400 youth in the upcoming months. All upcoming activities will adhere to the safety regulations and social distancing requirements to ensure the safety of beneficiaries.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, EFE-Jordan collaborated with AMRTC to deliver in-person employer-driven training and apprenticeship programs to 1,746 underserved and unemployed youth in AMRTC including 584 trained online during the pandemic.

AMRTC is a state-of-the-art training facility, established by the Abdali Mall Company to accomplish its objective of empowering underserved youth, with a particular focus on women and refugees through equal access to employability skills training via adequate and free programs. The center was developed in collaboration with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
