Program Description

Uzbekistan Youth Employment Skills Activity will equip youth in Grades 8-11 with the necessary skills to enter Uzbekistan's economy as competent employees or entrepreneurs.

The activity targets in-school and afterschool students to ensure a successful school-to-work transition. World Learning will lead the implementation of two objectives using the WorkLinks approach to design and deliver curriculum, teacher and mentor trainings, and the corresponding assessments.

Program Goals

WorkLinks strengthens the connection of education institutions to community life in three stages:

  • Collaboratively analyzing current institutional practices in career preparation and work linkages.
  • Designing institutional solutions like embedded career centers and private sector advisory boards.
  • Guiding implementation until new structures and services are sustainably established.
