YouthSkilledUp is a program designed to boost livelihood and employability outcomes, for 10000 uneducated rural youth every year over the next 10 years, through informal training and development of various digital, vocational and technical skills that enhance human capital and lead to long-term gains in employment. An important component of the YouthSkilledUp program is the YouthSkilledUp portal, an online human resource platform that showcases each empowered youth with their specialised vocation and competencies, connecting them with individuals or organization in their location that needs their services. This is a one-stop place for individuals or organizations that needs services such as plumbing, wiring, event decoration, hairdressing, barbing, catering et.c. The platform provides the youth beneficiaries with the luxury of connecting to those who need their services with a flexible timeline that best fits their schedule with opportunities for them to earn-as-they-go through completed projects.
