Keypoints

The goal is to train 100 youths (in this first Batch) in on-demand ICT skills and ultimately link them to jobs to tap into the digital economy through the Technology Employment (TEMP) Bootcamp Project.

Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) launches Delta State Youth Employment Program (DYEP) to tackle youth unemployment in Delta State.

60 youths in Asaba and 40 in Warri, Delta State will be awarded scholarships to partake in a 6 months intensive training.

In line with who we are and our objectives to achieve employability/entrepreneurship particularly in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria through youth capacity building in business and innovative technologies, we are pleased to announce that we have been selected as implementation partners for the Delta Youth Employment Program (DYEP) project by PIND.

This partnership would enable Olotu Square consolidate on the gains of the Employment Support Program and adequately prepare youths in Delta State to key into the digital economy through training, ecosystem/community development, relevant partnerships, stakeholder engagement, mentorship, job linkage and entrepreneurship.

The signing and grant award ceremony took place in Warri, Delta state on the 30th of September 2021 and had Bruce Lucas – Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Aima Atigari – Former Chief Executive Officer and Key management staff of PIND present.
