An IYF webinar offers strategies currently being implemented in the region to address the gap between employer needs and youth competencies.
One initiative is preparing local young men and women with the full skill set that meets employer needs and can propel them to success.
Hilton Worldwide President and CEO Christopher J. Nassetta examines the need to align skills training to market need, ensure greater investment in youth economic opportunities, and see expanded cross-sector collaboration.
For me, getting the numbers right—particularly when they are measuring young people’s wellbeing—is critically important to how we shape meaningful youth development programs and strategies. Unfortunately, statistics around youth employment, perhaps the most significant indicator of whether a young person will lead a productive and successful life, may not paint an accurate or complete picture.
