The plight of desperate unemployed youths competing for casual jobs with villagers is a pressing issue that needs urgent attention. The Youth Initiative Development Programme (YIDP) recognizes the gravity of this situation and is committed to addressing it at the upcoming high-level convention in 2023.
Session 4 of the convention, titled “Public-Private Institutions Partnering with Colleges and Universities to Find, Nurture, Empower, and Match Talents,” aims to tackle this problem by focusing on creating effective education systems that align graduates’ training with their current career paths.
One of the key challenges faced by young graduates is the lack of adequate tracking systems to monitor their career progress and identify potential employment opportunities. Many universities and colleges struggle to keep track of their alumni, making it difficult to assess whether their training aligns with the demands of the job market.
During this session, experts from both public and private sectors will come together to explore innovative approaches to address this issue. They will discuss ways in which institutions can collaborate with employers and industries to identify current skill demands and design curricula that match those requirements.
Additionally, the session will delve into the importance of nurturing and empowering talents throughout the educational journey. By providing students with relevant skills, internships, and hands-on experiences, colleges and universities can better prepare them for the job market and increase their employability.
Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) will play a crucial role in bridging the gap between academia and industry. By fostering strong collaborations between educational institutions and businesses, students can gain exposure to real-world challenges and opportunities, leading to a smoother transition from education to employment.
Ultimately, the session seeks to find sustainable solutions that will uplift the prospects of unemployed youths and create a pathway for them to secure meaningful and fulfilling careers. By joining the YIDP high-level convention in 2023 and participating in Session 4, you will be part of the collective effort to shape education systems that truly empower and prepare the youth for a brighter future.
Together, let’s work towards breaking the cycle of pain and shame faced by desperate unemployed youths and empower them with the skills and opportunities they need to thrive in the job market. Join us in this crucial conversation and be a catalyst for positive change at the YIDP convention in 2023.
