2020 Nigeria Youth SDGs (NGYouthSDGs) Champions Program
Deadline: July 15, 2020.
The Nigeria Youth Employment Action Plan (NIYEAP) was developed by the International Labour Organisation, UN DESA and the Federal Ministry of Youth Development (FMYSD), as a strategy to respond effectively to the youth employment challenge in Nigeria. The major objectives of the plan are to address fragmentation and harness technical and financial resources for meaningful impact.
The plan targets young people between the ages of 18-29 years and details needed actions in support of employment creation for youth in critical economic and social sectors and outlines the financing, implementation, monitoring and evaluation frameworks.
Nigeria Youth SDGs Network (NGYouthSDGs) as a partner organization is recruiting youth advocates to raise awareness about the action plan, work with government, private sector and civil society leaders in their states to develop a framework to understand the aspirations of young people when it comes to decent work and evaluate the implementation of SDGs 4 and 7 in their states.
