This project seeks youth empowerment in the three targeted governorates; (Erbil, Sulaimani, and Duhok) to enhance employee employability and productive engagement. These kinds of training and development are considered as an essential element of strategy. Most employers have realized that providing technical support and development to the employees serves as employee motivation, but it also enables the companies/ organization to create a highly-skilled workforce.  Moreover, it is a unique opportunity for employers, mainly in the private sector, to develop the capacity of their employees by the provision of different employment skills which the companies required. Therefore, employers usually emphasize seeking the right skills and competencies for their companies. These are abroad competencies and behaviors that are essential for a prosperous working place. These are the critical employability skills and the core skills that will make the employees more effective. These skills are sometimes known as transferable skills because they develop over time and take them with the employers as their careers develop.

The project’s overall objective is to improve young people’s employability skills in the private sector by empowering 300 youths with training courses and advisory services, focusing on female and male youth aged 18-35.
