The narrative of unemployment and slow job creation in Zambia often dominates the dialog around youth. However, an important component of the youth narrative is the skills gap. For the jobs that do exist in the economy, young people are often unprepared to access them or fill them. Our youth are graduating from schools with excellent academic credentials and poor skills preparedness. Bridging the gap between what the job market is looking for and what young people possess is an important part of our work. We do this primarily through job shadows and leadership camps.
