Administrative Jobs in Ghana

The Youth Employment Agency (YEA) was established under the Youth Employment Act 2015 (Act 887) to empower young people to contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic and sustainable development of the nation. Its objective is to support the youth between the ages of 15 to 35 years through skills training and internship modules to transit from a situation of unemployment to that of employment. To ensure sustainability, the policy focus of YEA was changed in 2009 from the traditional modules which have pay roll implications to the self employment modules such as Trades and Vocation modules through public private partnership so as to reduce the burden on payment of stipend for the Paid Internship Module. This has attracted International acclaim, with the BBC ranking YEA as the best Youth Employment Programme in Africa in 2011. Available records indicate that as at December, 2012, over Six Hundred Thousand, (600,000) beneficiaries were recruited by the YEA. New modules were introduced and some of the existing modules such as The Youth in Security Services and Trades and Vocation were reviewed and expanded to meet the growing demand for youth employment in the country.
