SUPPORT THIS PROJECT
Now in its first year, as of February 2020, we have trained 6,224 graduates in our workplace readiness program ranging from seminars, online sessions and in-class session. Our strategy has been widely implemented at National Youth Service Orientation Camps at Abuja and Enugu States of Nigeria. We plan to take this to the Federal so we can reach over 20,000 graduates annually to boost their chances of getting employment immediately they complete the compulsory one year service program or increase their chances at retention with their employers at their place of primary deployment.
