TIME! to train, innovate, mobilise, and empower youth in Akre
The It is TIME! project focuses on training, innovation, mobilisation and empowerment of vulnerable young people in Akre. This project will unlock the potential of young people in Akre, a region which is sadly often neglected by organisations, making sure that every child has access to education and employment opportunities. Beneficiaries will undertake a 12-day skills training, teaching them about (1) Personal Empowerment, (2) Employability, (3) Active Citizenship, and (4) Building a Business. They will then participate in an intensive 4-day social innovation training. Young people will be given access to job fairs, internship opportunities, ILO job centre referrals, and seed funding for business plans and social initiatives.
