Youth Livelihoods

Purpose

Provide relevant employment training and job placement program to unemployed Haitian youth

Why We Partnered

This project will provide youth in Haiti with technical and employability skills relevant to the country’s national reconstruction efforts. Youth will receive basic education, instruction on life skills, and financial literacy, and will form savings circles. In addition, they will have access to vocational training in construction and learn leadership skills for the future. The program complements Haiti’s national reconstruction initiatives, enables youth to secure employment or self-employment, and strengthens local structures to respond to the needs of out-of-school and out-of-work youth.
