The rate of youth unemployment is alarming because of our poor educational system. Youths are not well guided on what to do at the elementary stage.

Hence reduce youth unemployment. This is done through career courses and workshops. Training; this is the root cause of youth unemployment .Many youths are rooming the streets because they do not have the necessary skills or professional training. As its major target The YES seeks to empower or train youths especially those that are underprivileged after guiding them. Placement; after a good career guidance and training, youths who are unable to create their own small businesses are placed to work in private institutions.
