Where We Work: Grenada
Through our Caribbean Youth Empowerment Program (CYEP), we offered marginalized young people in Grenada a holistic way of securing work and regaining hope.
To address high rates of youth unemployment, we targeted youth who had dropped out of school and who came from the poorest parts of the country. This demographic included young single mothers as well as youth at risk of juvenile delinquency. Altogether, CYEP supported them with market-driven technical, vocational, and life skills plus entrepreneurship training and career guidance. To create sustainable, long-lasting change, we also built our local partners’ institutional capacity and strengthened their ability to deliver services.
