There are several advantages in educating and training at-risk youth for jobs in today’s environments. The benefits will not only improve and change the status of many troubled youth, but will pave the way for the next generation of entrepreneurs, environmental developers, maintenance workers and construction builders that will aid in making the future world a better place to live. This article will explain a company’s personal agenda regarding their own business endeavors in an attempt to circulate social skills and techniques that are necessary for troubled youth.
By providing life skills training before placing youths in jobs that are both contracted and affiliated with the proposed company in question., they are able to provide the tools needed for future success. The company aspires to help young people achieve self-esteem and confidence, while developing a sense of civic responsibility. Because many of the contracts require security background checks, most of the jobs geared for at-risk youth, are through small private owned businesses such as beauty salons, barbershops, carpet cleaning companies, auto shops, and small construction sites that are guided by apprenticeship programs.
Better skills training can help support decent work, more equitable and inclusive growth and be the bridge between education and the labour market, supporting the transition from youth into adulthood. The world’s population is younger than ever, with 1.2 billion people aged 16-24. Therefore, providing pathways into the world of work for young people is one of the greatest development challenges of our era.
Recognising the pivotal role of skills training, especially for young people, to increase their chances for employment, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has set a number of ambitious targets on decent work and economic growth.
