Equipping Youth with the Skills to Succeed in the Workforce: New CEI Topic Portal

Yoojin Kim

CEI invites you to browse the newly launched Skills for Work Topic Portal.

More than 130 programs in the CEI database aim to tackle the issue of youth unemployment in low- and middle-income countries by equipping teenagers and young adults with the training and skills necessary to enter the workforce. Many deliver general skills training to ease transition into any field of work; some prepare youth for a particular trade; others provide guidance and mentoring to ensure young people have adequate support in their professional endeavors. The skills for work portal allows users to explore these trends and more.

Portal Features

The new portal features four pages:

Overview: Easily access resources from the research and evidence library and blog posts on skills for work, as well as the Database-at-a-Glance report, which highlights some of the common and emerging trends among CEI programs in the field.

Data visualizations: View the most up-to-date maps and graphs to help visualize trends in some of the main characteristics of CEI programs, such as their finance model or target audience.

Programs: Search for specific skills for work programs that meet your area of interest, such as those that operate in a particular country or those that have been externally evaluated.

News and resources: Stay in the loop on skills-related programs through innovator interviews, program spotlights, and blog posts, as well as research housed in CEI's research and evidence library. 

 

How can you help spread the word?

You can share the link to the topic portal with your own networks through your newsletter or on social media and help more program implementers, researchers, and donors engage with the CEI community.
