Worldwide, over 75m young people are unemployed

For many of the world’s poorest people finding real opportunities is difficult. Sadly in the post Covid-19 world things are only going to get harder. What was a global crisis has become a global emergency. Here at Y Care International we’re doing something about it.

Working closely with strong and trusted local YMCA partners, we’re striving to ensure that young people are supported through access to training; business and life skills; tools of the trade and entrepreneurial opportunities for growth.

There are 1000’s of young people teeming with talent, waiting to start their own businesses. They have the ideas; determination and passion. Let’s help them succeed.

Together we can help young people get themselves into work and out of poverty.
