The National Service Scheme (NSS) and the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) are set to collaborate to roll out a youth programme that will help create sustainable jobs for youth and address the worrying unemployment in the country.
The yet to be rolled out innovative youth programmes comes after the Chief Executive officer of YEA, Mr Justin Kodua Frimpong paid a courtesy call on the Executive Director of NSS, Mr Osei Assibey in his office to share ideas.
As part of the discussions, the two CEOs of the state agencies observed that as key stakeholders in youth development, it was important that both parties resolved to form a joint technical group to develop concepts for job creation.
They also pledged their commitment to continue the engagement to expedite the process of concept development for full implementation of the project.
The Chief Executives Officers noted that YEA and NSS would continue to expand existing modules and device strategies to create more sustainable jobs and opportunities and promote entrepreneurship among graduates.
NSS Chief Executive Director, Mr Assibey on his part said the collaboration between the two agencies was a step in the right direction as it would go a long way to enhance the government’s quest to provide sustainable jobs for the youth.
He said National Service Scheme (NSS) was ready to fully provide support to the innovative idea to make it see the light of day.
For his part, Mr Kodua was hopeful that the issues discussed would advance the welfare of the youth.
“Actually, being at the NSS allowed us to learn about their deployment modules, interact with their staffs and personnel, and determine where we might partner with them most effectively for both agencies.” Justin Kodua said.
