Zimbabwe - Work Readiness Training


Restless Development Zimbabwe, in collaboration with International Youth Foundation (IYF), through the Zimbabwe Works programme is working with young people to address life skills education in preparation for employment. Life skills training is helping educational institutions, businesses, and governments bridge the gap between current employment opportunities and today’s young jobseekers. Leaders in these fields agree that “soft skills” training is one of the missing links contributing to the talent gap in the employment sector - soft skills programming is often scattered, insufficient, or non-existent. As a result, too many young people are unprepared to get and keep a job. To address this need, IYF partnered with the GE Foundation in 2004 to develop Passport to Success.

Restless Development Zimbabwe looking for young people who are willing to be trained in Passport to Success®. This training will be done in a non-formal education set up and will require participants to attend 3-4 hour educational sessions 3 times a week for a total of 3-4 weeks. Training is available in Harare and Bulawayo.

Participants will be awarded certificates of completion and will receive follow up support on how they can use the skills and knowledge gained to enhance their lives and communities.
