EnterpriseNGR Youth of Enterprise (YOE) Internship Programme 2023
The Youth of Enterprise (YOE) Internship Programme is a flagship initiative of EnterpriseNGR designed to help address national youth unemployment and enhance Nigeria’s future productive capacity. YOE aims to improve the skillsets, professional competence, and employability of young graduates and place them in high-value internships, thus positioning them for meaningful career journeys.
The YOE Internship Programme is a paid six-month programme that offers Nigerian youth the perfect opportunity to re-invent themselves and “GREENSTART” their careers.
Youth of Enterprise (YOE) Internship Programme is one of EnterpriseNGR’s immediate developmental initiatives that aims to address the national youth unemployment and under-employment trends as well as build capacity in the private sector.
The National Population Commission places Nigeria’s population at about 220 million with 50% of the population comprising youth. Unfortunately, over 42% of Nigerian youth remain unemployed and a larger percentage are underemployed (Source: Nigerian Bureau of Statistics).
With the YOE Internship Programme we seek to improve the employability of Nigerian youth and position them for success in the workplace.
Through the YOE Internship Programme, EnterpriseNGR is playing a vital role in facilitating capacity building in the private sector and contributing to resolving the problem of unemployment in Nigeria.
