On 15 July 2019, we celebrate World Youth Skills Day and all the YMCAs across the globe supporting young people in technical and vocational education and training. YMCA believes that a good education leads to meaningful and sustainable employment. Therefore, it is important that young people have the opportunity to gain competencies suitable for today’s job market.
To meet this need, YMCAs around the world offer a wide range of vocational programmes for young people and adults where they not only have the chance to increase their knowledge of a profession, but also put their new skills into practice. They are then equipped with qualifications that give them the confidence to build a sustainable career.
