Although there have been tremendous improvements in economic transformation and technology innovation in Africa, the challenge lies in integrating youth into the workforce.

Obviously, there is a big disconnect because, inasmuch as the economy is expanding and domestic demand is increasing, access to gainful employment is not, hence the growing youth unemployment rate in Africa.

According to the African Development Bank Group, 10-12 million youth seek to enter the workforce each year. Even when jobs are available, youth often do not have the skills required by employers.

Readyforwork Career Coaching Program seeks to equip young people with the skills necessary to gain employment and contribute to a highly productive workplace. Group discussions, team conversations, and one-on-one coaching empower participants to take ownership of their career aspirations and grow in confidence that yields success.
