SOS Children’s Villages YouthCan! programme is a global initiative to empower young people and help them prepare for and manage their transition to independent adulthood. YouthCan! provides individualised, holistic support to prepare young people for the jobs market. It offers them hands-on experience in a real working environment, entrepreneurship training, skills sharing, career opportunities, and access to role models, mentors and networks.
Additionally, the digital platform YouthLinks leverages the power of technology to reach and support more young people so they can enhance their employability. It provides an opportunity for young people and mentors to connect more easily, share materials, create networks and support each other - breaking geographical and time barriers.
