Challenge

With an estimated population of 198 million people which comprises of over 60% of youths, the rate of unemployment has continued to rise with time from 14.2% to 18.8%. Nigeria's unemployment rate continue to rise in the midst of rising inflation and shrinking economy even as the labor population increased from 83.9 million in the second quarter to 85.1 million in the third quarter of 2017. This has left a larger percentage of youths unemployed and a major issue this project aims to tackle.

Solution

YouthHubAfrica advocates and promotes youth empowerment and development. These 25 young individuals are trained on how to use digital and social media to aid documentation, reporting and dissemination of information. Their classroom learning mixed with practical session on most of the modules helped participants test their knowledge as the work progresses. After the training, participants are placed as interns in different organizations.

Long-Term Impact

The media Internship project will train 25 young Nigerians allowing them make use of the media in storytelling and documentation of stories which will impact and influence their community. With these training, these trainees will be able to use their skills to advocate for development. The training will bring about skill acquisition, which lead to a source of income for themselves, hence the solving the problem of unemployment. The project will expose the youths to new work/job experiences.
