USAID launching youth skills and employment project
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Guyana) has hosted several workshops in preparation for the launch of a two-year Skills and Knowledge for Youth Employment (SKYE) Project in April to equip young adults for the job market and entrepreneurship.
In a press release, USAID said that along with its implementing partner, the Education for Development Centre (EDC), it inaugurated the project with a “Work Readiness Curriculum Design Workshop” on March 6, 7 and 9. “Work readiness is a set of basic employability skills, knowledge and behaviours used by youth and adults in order to be successful as entry-level workers or as entrepreneurs,” the release said. The EDC is a US-based global education and training institution.
