In an attempt to solve poverty and youth unemployment challenges in Nigeria, we have identified career counseling, vocational education, and entrepreneurship as a viable solution. Many people see vocational education as a second choice for those that are not privileged to go to school, meanwhile, it is meant to be part of the school curriculum. The reason we have lots of unemployed graduates is that our society and parents believe more in getting educated in order to seek a good job than to create a good job.
We hope to see the following changes:
- Increased number of highly skilled young people.
- Reduction in social vices among unemployed youths.
- Change in the attitude of young school leavers towards personal development programs.
- Increase in the number of young people starting their own businesses.
- Better support system for young entrepreneurs.
- Bridging the employability skills gap
