Promoting Young People for EmploymentPromoting young people for employment is one way to play a significant part in economic growth, amodel of sustainable and development.Before anything let us go into labour in an economy the demand for labour in an economy is derivedfrom the demand for goods and services. As such, if the demand for goods and services in the economyincreasing, the demand for labour will increase, increasing employment and wages.Monetary policy and fiscal policy can both be used to increase short term growth in the economy,increasing the demand labour and decreasing unemployment.Advocates of supply side policies believe that polices can solve this by making the laobur market moreflexible. These include removing the minimum wage and reducing the power of unions.Supply-Siders argue the reforms increase long-term growth this increased supply of goods and servicesrequires more workers, increasing employment. It is argued that supply side policies which includecutting taxes on business and reducing regulation create jobs and reduce unemployment.Other Supply- Side polices include education to make workers more attractive to employed workers thisyear 2012, towards the goals of the African youth Organization (AYO) formally adopted youth enterprisewith innovation in African (YEWIA) as one of our five fundamental goals in support of sustainabledevelopment.We Plan to include innovations in promoting youth employment and creating opportunities for youth inworking place.In African Countries around the world, and we expect to maintain this commitment.Youth Enterprise with innovation in African (YEWIA) is actually a business plan competition aimed atjobs creating by encourage and support entrepreneurship youth in African to develop and executebusiness ideas.African Continents regarded as the third would countries and popularly known as developingcontinents suffered a lot of setbacks companied to the fact rate at which the other continent develops.
The set-back ranges from Economic limitations, technological cum handicap corruption emanatingfrom the self styled leaders to cultural, social, political and ethical calamities that has engulfed the enterNaturally endowed talents which are now destroying every facts of African.The youth under this forum has decided to rise to the against the affonementied problems to seek alasting solutions with their vigorous and un relevant less efforts towards destroying this problems.The first major step towards this action is the general orientation of African, innovating the mysterysurrounding these problem which is believed could be solved amicably with through their (the youth)collective cooperation, involvements and dedication.African youth must be made to known the extent at which their future development are in every angleof human existence are mortgaged and the possible way forwards. It is our collection responsibility andmust be judiciously pursued to achieve a lasting success.The following are the suggested steps that must be taken to ameliorate the problems facing thecontinents.1. CREATION OF EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES: Generally the creation of employmentopportunities for the youth unavoidably is a global problem that must be solved. The youth may not beable to attain the weapon to destroy this ugly monster called employment if they are not empoweredskillfully and financially. This can be carefully implemented through the invitation of all the unemployedyouth in an African country communities if possible local govt. areas.The statistic would be taken by accredited monitoring group set up by the coordinator of this project.Each African youth educational background would be known and written down in files. Their areas ofinterest would be noted, their contact addresses/ Telephone number would be taken, Age of Maritalstatus noted amongst other Account the above statistic would be gathered to ensure a litchi- freeclassification s and assessment.Further more: the organizer are to prepare / appoint and employ professionals locally or internationallyto ensure that crafts and vocational centers are established at various center to undertake the trainingof the youth in all areas of the chosen careers, the available crafts could include tailoring & fashion-
designing, barbing , hospitality concerns, vulcanizing, computing education, mechanical and electricalworkshops, farming etc.Moreover, As soon as the training commences, the coordination would make sure that either small-scale or large scale industries are built with all the necessary machineries needed to absolve the skilfulyouth. Production would follow accordingly with the creation of available market to consume theproducts/goods produced at moderate/pockets-for decently price.A large Accounting section would be set up for proper and transparent accountability of all the fundsneed and plunging back white the profit mange are taken care of accordingly.Proper monitoring of all the activities by the coordination through a special committee would be set upto make sum that it is a reality.A solid security outfit would be established the purchase and leasing of adequate land space from thelandowners to accommodate the project at the chosen sites which is accessible to the youth involvedthese steps mentioned would eradicated unemployment and put smiles on the entire African countriesWelfare packages would also be provided for their relaxation and arouse their interest. YOUTH BASIC NEEDSIn African the employment methodology is implemented through youth enterprise center: clusters ofAfrican countries where youth are mobilized to create opportunities for youth employment in the workplace and innovations in promoting youth employment and run their own programs to meet basic needsafter several phases over a year’s period. Youth in all African countries will pound of good job andbenefit from economic and social development.The employment project will mobilized to all countries in African.The youth enterprise center strategy is intergraded and holistic.

Youth Improvement and successful in training academyPrinciplesThe five principles listed below have been developed through our work to end unemployment wechallenge ourselves to ensure that each of our strategies builds on these principles.(1) Human Dignity: Our inherent nature is creative resourceful, responsible and productive.We must not treat people living in conditions of unemployment as beneficiaries, which can crush dignitybut rather as they resource for ending unemployment.(2) Gender Equality: Youth major responsibility for meeting basic needs freedom of action and voice in decision making to fulfill that responsibility. An essential part of ending unemployment must be to cause society wide change towards gender equality.(3) Empowerment: in the face of social suppressions, focused and sustained action is required to awaken youth to the possibility of employment to build confidence, and to organize communities to take charge o f their own development.(4) Leverage: Ending Unemployment requires action that catalyzes large-scale systemic change we must regularly step back assess our impact with in the evolving social/ political/ economic environment and launch the highest leverage actions we can to meet this challenge.
(5) Transformative leadership: ending unemployment requires a new kind of leadership not top- sown, authority based leadership, but leadership that awakens people to their own power leadership “with” people rather than leadership “Over” people.Impact AssessmentThe employment project (TEP) is committed to providing its stakeholders with timely, object andaccurate data on the impact of it strategies our impact assessment program is designed.1. To support innovations in promoting youth employment and creating opportunities for youth inthe workplace.2. To enable youth in countries of African and Partner organization to continuously improved ourprograms.3. To engage in advocacy work with policymakers and other through leaders to help persuadethem that our bottom up gender-focused approach is deserving of wider adoption in the developmentfield.Our impact Assessment program is consistent with our program methodology, to empower youth livingin condition of unemployment to be the agents of their own development.Strengthening the skills needed for them to participate n actively monitoring their progress is an integralcomponent of our programs.MethodologyThe employment project works in partnership with young people in African to develop effective bottom-up strategies. We have discovered three critical elements that, when combined, empower people tomake rapid in overcoming unemployment. • Mobilizing youth at the highest level rage actions we can to meet this challenge • Empowering youth as key agents, and • Forging partnerships with countries of African.The employment project’s approach is different from the conventional top-down planning used by manydevelopment agency and government. These top-down approaches follow a service delivery model andoften undermine our most important resource. The creativity, of people living in conditions of
unemployment themselves the below table show why the top-down, service delivery approach so oftenfails, and why the bottom up, employment approach succeeds.Service Delivery Vs.
