Skills for Success

The Jobs Crisis

The jobs crisis is hitting mostly youth and women. Young women are confronted with a tough job market compromising their futures as the world faces unprecedented economic disruption and the need to develop skills for a digital future is more apparent.

At the same time, the Information Technology (IT) sector is booming and companies are investing more as the management and exchange of information has become more essential to both internal and external business operations. Educators charged with teaching IT must ensure that the material being taught reflects the changes in the industry.

The Reskilling Revolution

In partnership with International Youth Foundation and with funding from Google, YTF is implementing Skills for Success (SfS) – Google Professional Certificate Program in Nigeria. 300 young women between the ages of 18 and 25 are being trained in technology and soft skills to secure jobs, learnerships and other opportunities in the technology sector through obtaining the Google IT certificate as well as wrap around services including soft skills and job placement services.

Learning for Life

Learners are engaged in job placement services including virtual recruitment events, hackathons, company hosted recruitment fairs including virtual career days at technology companies.
