The initiatives encourage Emiratis to freelance, become entrepreneurs and innovate.

An initiative that will provide opportunities for Emirati youths in government and private sector to work as freelancers so they can provide skills-based services has been rolled out in Abu Dhabi.

The Abu Dhabi Media Office has announced that the Department of Government Support, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Youth Council and Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) launched the Abu Dhabi Youth Council initiatives to enable young Emiratis to provide services to entities as freelancers in order to create a new culture of work.

"The entities will announce the projects (before proceeding with public tendering) on Abu Dhabi Government Services website 'TAMM', and citizens can register to pitch their services for each project," Abu Dhabi Media Office said on Twitter.

"The initiatives encourage Emiratis to freelance, become entrepreneurs and innovate."

The youths will also provide remote-working job opportunities without full employment requirements, and build a network of young, skilled Emiratis.
