Skills and Knowledge for Youth Employment (SKYE) Guyana

The Skills and Knowledge for Youth Employment (SKYE) project seeks to strengthen youth’s access to justice and equip youth with market-driven skills and attitudes to improve their ability to transition to the workforce. SKYE is targeting a total of 1,500 youth beneficiaries who do not have the necessary education, skills, and behaviors for integration into the workforce; many are school dropouts and/or involved in the juvenile justice system. SKYE also provides capacity building support to local partner organizations, as well as relevant government ministries and the court system. SKYE works in seven regions, which were selected for their high populations of vulnerable youth, high crime areas, and high rates of unemployment.
