The Youth Engagement Desk, Office of the President, has partnered with the Association of Graduates in Skills Development – Ghana (AGSD-GH) to provide graduates with skills development.

The Youth Engagement Office, through its Graduate Support Project (GSP), provides employability skills and alternative opportunities for graduates and youth.

AGSD-GH, formerly the Unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana (UGAG), and some other young people would be engaged in soap making, snail farming and mushroom farming.

Participants will also be given training in financial management and accounting, bookkeeping, branding and advertising, basic marketing principles, and social media and digital marketing.

Mr Desmond Bress-Biney, President, AGSD-GH, in a statement, said some 5000 youth across the country would be trained in various skills development programmes.

It said: “The pilot phase of the project begins on Thursday, February 3, 2022, at Kpeve in the Volta Region and subsequently to Accra on Thursday, February 10, 2022.”

“The last part of the pilot phase will take place in Kumasi and Koforidua on a date yet to be
announced,” it added.

According to the statement, at the end of the pilot phase, some 450 participants were expected
to benefit from the free training and would be given starter kits to begin their businesses.
