Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS)

This program focuses on enhancing self-perception, goal-oriented training, and empowerment. It includes assessing barriers, providing measures for awareness, and utilizing a company-designed self-assessment tool. The goal is to understand personal abilities and limitations, culminating in improved leadership skills and effective goal management by the workshop’s end.

This comprehensive program consists of distinct steps – SEARCH, TRAIN, PLAN, and STRUCTURE. The SEARCH phase helps identify strengths, weaknesses, goals, and requirements. The TRAIN phase focuses on skill enhancement, idea foundation, and versatile knowledge acquisition. The PLAN phase guides goal planning, portfolio building, and networking strategies. Finally, the STRUCTURE phase involves laying out a blueprint, executing ideas, overcoming barriers, and setting deadlines. Together, these steps provide a holistic approach to personal and professional development.
