Youth unemployment remains a huge challenge to Ghana’s advancement, with many young people with some education or training unable to find jobs or turn their ideas into generating wealth. AMGI’s youth development programme aims to work with youth in local communities, by building their capacity, providing direction and offering practical training in skills and entrepreneurship.
AMGI aims to provide youth with not just vocational and technical skills, but also the right attitude to do business, whether as entrepreneurs or employees of others. It has increasingly become clear that young people do not commit all their efforts to training and jobs that pay them. The Institute intends to study the causes and seek proposals from young people on how to ensure young people feel motivated about their jobs.
In the area of civic engagement, AMGI intends to work with youth in local communities to identify their priorities and help them identify resources within and outside their communities to enable them to become productive members of their communities.
