  • Coaching/training youth on pre-employment needs, tactics, and strategies for how to get jobs
  • Creating initiatives that invest in vocational training and start-up opportunities for young adults from the informal sector to gain 6 months experience while learning skills on the job (briquette making & hairdressing)
  • Developing lists of jobs/fellowships/volunteer opportunities/seed grants/scholarships/etc and placing them in youth spaces for easy access by the youth
