Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) has a wide network of youth employment stakeholders, including the private sector, civil society, donors, governments, and youth. S4YE’s Regional Youth Employment Forum, Learning from Innovations in Youth Employment, is a collaborative effort between the World Bank’s Social Protection and Jobs team in Ethiopia and S4YE to:
- Convene the newly expanded S4YE Impact Portfolio in Africa to share exciting innovations in the field of youth employment and discuss practical design ideas on specific technical topics and learn from experts • Use insights from these technical discussions as input for the design of the planned Ethiopia Urban Safety Net and Jobs Project.
The 2-day brings together S4YE’s network in-person for the first time in the Africa region.
Participants will include:
- World Bank Group senior management and teams leading youth employment operations globally and in Ethiopia, Nigeria, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Kenya. • Senior Government representatives from Ethiopia • Senior executives from Private Sector firms which are part of the S4YE network • Members of S4YE’s Impact Portfolio, a community of innovative youth employment projects • Technical experts and other stakeholders
