Technical support for theformulations and implementation of coherent national employment, vocational training andinvestment polices. Unemployment cause crime and affect economic of country.Unemployment is not a disease that can be cured rather; it is a complex problem for which thereis no one cause or cure. I prime Bright akinola Presidents of African Youth, believe deeply that itour collaborative responsibility of both across government agencies and out to non- governmentalentities to act to end unemployment.Unemployment is not problem of one country or another but is global issues.Instead there are a range of biological, cultural, economic, social and psychological influencingfactor most unemployment however can be prevented.Though United Nation-African partnership for economic opportunity, by putting hands together toSupport New youths generation Goals (NYGG).Focus On Two Main Areas.· Economic, social and environmental development: by entrepreneurship, business supportservices. Access to educational tools and building human capacity to equip people for employmentopportunities.Entrepreneurship is the active process of recognizing an economic demand in an economy andsupplying the factors of production (Land, Labour and Capital) to satisfy the demand usually togenerate a profit.Unemployment Combined with slow economic growth in the formal sector have forced a largepart of the developing world’s population into self-employment and informal activities.
  2. 2. But this is not necessarily negative, entrepreneurship contribute significant to economic growthsocial stability and equity. The sector is one of the most important vehicle through which low-income people can escape unemployment and with limited skills and education to complete forformal sector jobs, these men and women find economic opportunities in entrepreneurshipbusiness owner and employees. Over the long run, a nation’s greatest asset is human capital.Human Capital does not simply materialize, nor can it be conveniently purchased. It must becultivated over the long term.

  3. 3. The Innovation in promoting young employment and creating opportunities for youth in theworkplace.Promoting young people for employment is one way to play a significant part in economic growth,a model of sustainable and development.Before anything let us go into labour in an economy the demand for labour in an economy isderived from the demand for goods and services. As such, if the demand for goods and servicesin the economy increasing, the demand for labour will increase, increasing employment andwages.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 marketmore flexible. 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 andservices requires more workers, increasing employment. It is argued that supply side policieswhich include cutting taxes on business and reducing regulation create jobs and reduceunemployment.Other Supply- Side polices include education to make workers more attractive to employedworkers this year 2012, towards the goals of the African youth Organization (AYO) formallyadopted youth enterprise with innovation in African (YEWIA) as one of our five fundamentalgoals in support of sustainable development.We Plan to include innovations in promoting youth employment and creating opportunities foryouth in working 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 competitionaimed at jobs creating by encourage and support entrepreneurship youth in African to developand execute business 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 continentdevelops.The set-back ranges from Economic limitations, technological cum handicap corruptionemanating from the self styled leaders to cultural, social, political and ethical calamities that hasengulfed the enter Naturally endowed talents which are now destroying every facts of African.
