Accelerated Vocational Training Center for the Economic Inclusion of Tripoli's Youth in Lebanon
- On GoingStatus
The project's main overall objective is to stimulate local economic development through fostering sustainable economic participation and resilience of vulnerable youth. In particular, the project will foster the economic inclusion of Tripoli's youth in the Old City and surrounding marginalized communities.
The specific objective will be to enhance the job skills of youth through accessible accelerated market-based training programs. Through the operational establishment of an accelerated vocational training center, young people will have access to programs that will equip them with essential pre-employment competencies that are in demand in the Lebanese labor market. In addition, the project will aim at increasing the integration of youth in the labor market through direct linkages to employment opportunities. Finally, the project will build on these marketable job skills, and will create a collective mechanism for promoting the economic rights of skilled youth through advocacy. The project will apply a comprehensive participatory approach, engaging around 850 youth in building their futures.
