Second Chances For Youth At Risk: The Caribbean Youth Empowerment Program

This report presents key results and achievements of the Caribbean Youth Empowerment Program (CYEP) at its closure. The program offered vulnerable youth ages 17 to 25 in Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Jamaica, and St. Lucia a second chance to gain the life skills and technical knowledge they needed to enter the job market. CYEP participants made this progress by training for a specific vocation, developing entrepreneurial skills, or receiving in-depth career guidance. In addition, the report describes success factors in the program’s model.
