About Us

#WAT Academy was founded in 2016 in Miri, Sarawak to provide a safe space and ecosystem for all youths & young talents to explore and grow. In 2019 we developed Project Adopt Local Talent (#projectALT), an initiative where organizations and employers are able to meet quality young talents.

&  Unemployment issues in Malaysia


Young talents and youths are the future of our nation and strive for a positive impact in their life.  Therefore, #WAT Academy desire to serve as a bridge between youth including from the marginalised community  and the industry to upskill the youth workforce and support the workplace. 

Be a part of this talent adoption

We at WAT’s main goal is to help our local talents in Sarawak and Malaysia. What does adopt local talents mean is that we hope and encourage organizations to adopt our local talents and nurture their talents. We strongly believe that when an organization adopts our local talents that one day after being neutered and groomed they will be able to help the organization in terms of manpower and better flow to join their team. It’s an ecosystem that keeps us rising.
