Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Tamale, Youth Empowerment for Life (YEFL) and Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES Ghana) is implementing a 16-month pilot dubbed “Youth Led Initiatives for Employment” (Youth LIFE) Project.
Youth LIFE aims to ensure that vulnerable, out-of-school urban and peri-urban youth share in opportunities for social development and economic growth. Youth will be eligible to pursue a choice of five different technical areas through the program.
YEFL will implement all training components and provide leadership on youth assessments while YES Ghana provides leadership to finalize classroom based training curricula and other technical assistance. CRS, the funding body, provides ICT4D and monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning oversight, and also ensures systems and tools are created through the pilot to facilitate scale up.
