Deal Share Live – Youth Empowerment
Youth account for 60% of Africa’s unemployed population, according to the World Bank. Youth unemployment is arguably one of our most significant challenges and risks on the continent. To meet the growing employment demand, we need to create 12 million jobs annually but as it stands, we are only creating three million jobs per year. Various strategies are needed to counter this growing challenge with interventions that; encourage entrepreneurship, offer on-the-job learning and training, and create opportunities for cross-generational mentorship. For this live pitch session, AVPA has selected four enterprises that are youth-led or impact the youth in partnership with Further Impact and the African Leadership Academy.
