Whopping numbers of unemployment and underemployment are on the rise exponentially in the country, particularly among the youth category between the ages 18 & 40 years, mostly comprised of graduates.
Part of the menace is not the fact that there is no job, rather, the accurate information, channels, and flexibility, and criteria for qualification for job accessibility are either inappropriate to merit the job opportunity.
On the back of this, the Youth Employment Agency is outdooring this initiative as part of its responsibilities to mitigate the issue of unemployment in the country in partnership with the private sector on 9th and 10th September 2021.
The job fair is planned to take place in selected regions in the country, after the success of the Accra edition.
This is for persons looking for a job, internship, career guidance or advice.
To participate in the Job & Career Fair, fill the form with accurate information about you.
The fair is slated on the 9th and 10th of September at Accra International Conference Center, from 8:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m each day.
YOUTH EMPLOYMENT AGENCY
The Youth Employment Agency (YEA) was established under the Youth Employment Act 2015 (Act 887) to empower young people to contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic and sustainable development of the nation.
Its objective is to support the youth between the ages of 15 to 35 years through skills training and internship modules to transit from a situation of unemployment to that of employment.
To ensure sustainability, the policy focus of YEA was changed in 2009 from the traditional modules which have pay roll implications to the self-employment modules such as Trades and Vocation modules through public private partnership so as to reduce the burden on payment of stipend for the Paid Internship Module.
This has attracted International acclaim, with the BBC ranking YEA as the best Youth Employment Programme in Africa in 2011.
Available records indicate that as at December, 2012, over Six Hundred Thousand, (600,000) beneficiaries were recruited by the YEA. New modules were introduced and some of the existing modules such as The Youth in Security Services and Trades and Vocation were reviewed and expanded to meet the growing demand for youth employment in the country.
