Given that the requirement for youth employment is building the skills of youth for existing and potential labor market opportunities, YESSO will support existing systems at Federal and State levels and strengthen the partnership between them and the Private sector for enhancing employability of youths. Based on lessons of experience in-country and around the World, this component will support four major sets of activities; 

  • Training, particularly for life skills, sector specific skills, and entrepreneurial skills;
  • Internship/apprenticeship with private and public sector agencies;
  • provision of stipends to skills for job beneficiaries and
  • Tracking of participants through a robust Monitoring and Evaluation (M & E) system.

The National Directorate of Employment in partnership with State Governments and the Private Sector will implement this component.
