Youth Upliftment through Employment (Y.U.T.E)
What is YUTE – Youth Upliftment Through Employment?
Coordinated by a Jamaican private sector-led coalition, YUTE is a holistic programme designed to empower young people in troubled communities by:
- Improving their employability through mentorship and skills upgrading
- Providing opportunities for gainful employment – work experience and real jobs
It zeroes in on some of the root causes of violence and unemployment among young people through an aggressive 2 year programmatic approach.
The programme will be supported by active mentorship for the 2200 young people.
