There are a lot of youth who have learned and trained on various livelihood skills but they lack employment opportunities in the area, this scenario has caused youth to indulge in risk behaviors like joining  gangs, armed groups, clan militias and other proscribed groups.

Mostly youth strive for opportunities; others want to continue with their studies, get employment, experience and participate productively in the workforce. But they are hampered by a lack of opportunities; they leave the country because they have to survive.

For these reasons YESO NGO in collaboration with International organizations came up with initiative which they offered jobs placement to youth who had acquired skills through various projects, they registered the youth as interns in various companies and organizations where YESO paid monthly basic salary for a period of three months.

The Selected beneficiaries (Male & Female) were both from IDP & Host communities; most of them were youth at risk. YESO also brought on board local institutions, government agencies and private sector in a bid to encourage them to recognize the potentiality of local human resources and offer job opportunities to them for a long term solution of the situation.
