About Opportunities for Youth Employment

Opportunity for Youth Employment (OYE) acts as the missing link between disadvantaged young people and markets - our experience has shown that even in fragile contexts such as the Sahel, market-based approaches coupled with youth ownership can be a very effective approach.  Attendees at the International Opportunity for Youth Conference will get an overview of the specific youth employment approaches that SNV has been implementing for the past 6 years in many countries, notably in Mali as part of the EJOM project (in partnership with ICCO, WASTE and APEJ). Find out more about the Value Chain Development and Youth Employment in Mali project.

Come, learn and share with fellow development practitioners and young people from various countries across sub-Saharan Africa. Below are some of their stories.
