Youth Apprenticeship & Empowerment Programme for Liberia

Requested by

Consolidated Youth for Peace and Development (COYPED)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Since the end of the war, dozens of international NGOs, local NGOs and private training firms have been providing various combinations of education, training and micro/small business services to war-affected populations. Approaches have included residential vocational training, supplying private firms with prescreened youth interns and placing young people in artisan workshops as apprentices.

Many of these donor-funded programmes were designed quickly in the rush to “keep the youth busy” in the immediate post-conflict environment. Most have included some combination of services, such as literacy and numeracy education, or life skills, including reproductive health, gender-based violence sensitization or conflict management. But few have been able to provide a comprehensive package that ensures adequate linkages among available services over time.

This proposal targets five hundred (500) disadvantaged youths in Montserrado County in Liberia aged 18-35 years with little or no education with a focus on motor cyclists, car loaders and street sellers. Special priority will be given to female beneficiaries.

The Programme will enhance youth empowerment and reduce unemployment

What is your project and how will it help?

The Consolidated Youth for Peace & Development (COYPED) in partnership with the Liberian Furniture & Carpentry Union will collaborate with the Ministry of Youth & Sports, Ministry of Education (Department of Vocational Education) and key stakeholders in the TVET sector for the successful implementation of the project.

COYPED will conduct a series of career development symposia for targeted beneficiaries; create awareness and encourage unskilled, disadvantaged and marginalized youths to register and participate as well as work with community leaders in identifying and recruiting beneficiaries.

COYPED in partnership the Liberian Furniture & Carpentry Union is proposing the Youth Apprenticeship & Empowerment Programme (YAEP) to enhance technical skills, employment and empowerment of 500 disadvantaged young people in Montserrado County, Liberia.
