Qafelah is a social services organization focusing on youth. I joined Qafelah team as a facilitator in the first youth development summer camp. These camps were 30 days long and served over 300,000 beneficiaries per annum. Facilitating, designing, team leading, facilitators evaluating, strategizing, and recruiting were the responsibilities I worked on during this period.

Trainee at Alyaum Newspaper
King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM) is a leading educational organization for science and technology in the middle east. It ranks first on number of research and patents in the Arab world. I joined KFUPM as a graduate assistant then promoted to lecturer, worked in many committees and many projects, and taught in College of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Industrial Management, and College of General Studies.

Teaching Assistant
Working with counseling and advising center and student affairs committee were wonderful experiences. Teaching lectures, labs and skills courses with diversified student base led me to realize the importance of varying teaching methods. When leaving KFUPM, I was asked to teach a course every semester on a contractual basis and I am teaching the Training course at College of Industrial Management this semester.
KFUPM has an enriching practice by allowing honored undergraduate students to assist teaching courses on which they got A grade as a part-time job. Starting on my sophomore year I helped teaching many MIS and Computer Science courses and supported evaluating Software Engineering senior projects.
Alyaum Newspaper was one of the first press movers to the cyber-world. Its IT department was an attractive choice for a young software engineer trainee like me. I worked with the website development team and proposed developing the student's competency portal for KFUPM. The initiative was accepted and sponsored by the newspaper.
2007 @ Mawhiba
Academic Administrator
KACGC (AKA Mawhiba) is a governmental organization for giftedness. Aims to support the construction and development of an environment and a society of creativity, in its fullest meaning, to enable the gifted to exploit and harness their talents to the service of the nation. I worked with Mawhiba summer programs in KFUPM and Saudi Aramco advising gifted students, training them soft skills and computer related aspects like programming and robotics, and supervising their projects.
Microsoft initiated a joint project with many universities to work on localizing their CLIP programming language project. It focuses on enabling university graduating student to work on a real life project. KFUPM was selected for MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and I was selected to lead the project and to train six students to deliver the project.

Board Member
RAZ Group is one of the emerging conglomerates in Saudi Arabia. Established at 2000 and evolved to a complete reformation on the beginning of 2010. Its main cause is to enable entrepreneurs through Solidarity Investment (a new startup incubation and financing model). We are partnering more than 80 entrepreneurs and counting. In Raz we invest in people not in projects and believe in “who” then “what” which makes our human strategy the most crucial part of the company business. Creating a family business out of non-family members is our aim. My role is to make sure that we have the right intake and they are taken care of.
