FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PRESIDENTIAL YOUTH EMPOWERMENT SCHEME (P-YES) PROGRAMME ONLINE REGISTRATION
The Federal Government of Nigeria has launched another youth empowerment programme called P-YES.
The full meaning of P-YES is Presidential Youth Empowerment Scheme. The scheme is structured as a Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative driven by the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Students Affairs (OSAPYSA). The program is targeted at providing solutions to the challenges of youth unemployment, through the execution of direct empowerment initiatives.
In case you’re curious, P-YES is like the NPOWER. However, while Npower beneficiaries are posted to publicly owned establishments such as schools, hospitals etc, P-YES beneficiaries will be trained and empowered on certain areas of vocations and businesses.
