From 2010 to 2012 the EPQ initiative prepared youth in Senegal to enter the local job market and improved local schools’ and NGOs’ ability to serve young people. EPQ drew from IYF’s Passport to Success® (PTS) life skills and employability curriculum and adapted the lessons to Senegalese culture and employment needs. With local partner Synapse Center, we trained middle school teachers and NGO leaders to implement PTS for the benefit of youth in and out of school across the country, specifically the regions of Ziguinchor, Sédhiou, Kolda, and Kédougou.
