While there are numerous youth employment initiatives being implemented across the globe, S4YE’s focus is on developing and delivering innovative second generation of youth employment programs – especially those that explicitly link supply side and demand-side interventions, and work together with the private sector.

Youth employment programs incorporate skills training to unlock opportunities for young people, but often fail to see the necessity of designing for this dynamic workplace.  More so, they miss the mark in equipping young people with critical entrepreneurial skills that help them design and iterate solutions in and for their communities.

  • Youth Employment in Africa: Opportunities and Challenges

    2014 Dec AERC Biannual workshop held in Lusaka, Zambia. Africa has the fastest growing and most youthful population globally. More than 20 percent of Africa’s population is between the ages of 15 and 24. Thus, the continent faces demographic challenges as its population of young people increases, and access to secure jobs continues to be difficult. Beyond economic costs, high rates of youth unemployment and underemployment have social ramifications. Some youth, with few job prospects and little hope of future advancement, may see little alternative to criminal activities or joining armed conflicts. Consequently, unemployed and underemployed youth are more exposed to conflicts and illegal activities—many of them fall prey to armed and rebel groups, and are readily availa...
