Summary

"Employment Hub" is a program that aims to support at least 80 financially-vulnerable, unemployed youth by training them on employability and soft skills in a bid to help them find jobs. As a result of the Beirut explosion, we are now focusing our efforts on supporting unemployed youth from the affected neighborhoods. Through this program, youth will gain the skills and opportunities needed to help them stand back on their feet within just a few months.

Challenge

The Beirut blast left nearly 70,000 people unemployed. Adding to this the economic crisis and COVID, it is expected that the poverty rate will exceed 50% of the population. With no income to pay for rent, food, or medicine, people are turning to desperate measures to survive, while crime, violence, drug use, homelessness, depression, and suicide are expected to increase.

Solution

This project will support 80 unemployed youth from the affected explosion areas by enrolling them in an apprenticeship training program, and providing them with employability and soft skills, and matching them up with mentors to further provide them with personal and professional guidance and support over the course of three months. Youth who commit to the program will receive $200/month from Nawaya.

Long-Term Impact

Through this holistic program, 80 unemployed youth will be able to focus on developing their personal and professional skills during a period of intense financial crisis, where they will be given a chance to feel productive and dignified again. The skills they learn will be essential to help them secure long-term employment. After the initial three months, Nawaya will work to help place them in paid job opportunities in partnership with UNICEF and the "Jobs for Lebanon" platform.
