 Current Facilities

ACITVE has four developed facilities which are fully equipped with IT infrastructure and boarding quarters to run these programs. Our preference is to start off with the flagship course where the students would be offered boarding and lodging in addition to the training. This would allow ACITVE students to engross fully into the training and mentoring on the areas of personal development, entrepreneurial mindset, employability skills and their selected training skill. This program would then be expanded to limited time in-person (day scholars) trainings and online training program in form of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) to reach the larger population. The current facilities are located in Faisalabad, Kasur, Lahore, Chakwal and Karachi; with the vision to expand in Sargodha, Lilla, Narowal and Multan in the near future.
