CYD Calls For Youth Empowerment

The Centre for Youth Development (CYD) has urged government to come up with a suitable curriculum which will empower young people with further skills for them to match what is expected on job market.

Executive director of CYD James Gondwe said there is a mismatch between skills that the youth are being taught in colleges and what is on the job market which makes it difficult for young people to survive the pressure.

He further said there is also a need to improve youth participation in governance structures so that they can easily contribute the countries development.

“As a country we need to come up with proper mechanisms of making sure that we are able to provide enough employment opportunities for young people for example our community colleges are able to provide skills but they do not match the job market so we need to come up with a curriculum which matches the job market,” said Gondwe.
