Vocational training for young people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

Between 2006 and 2010, Y Care International supported the East Jerusalem YMCA Vocational Training Centre in Jericho (EJYMCA VTC) to provide vocational training and post training support to almost 600 disadvantaged young people from across the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).

In June 2013, a Y Care International Impact Assessment team visited the EJYMCA VTC to assess the long term change to the lives of the young people who were trained and supported during this period. The Impact Assessment explored the extent to which the project changed young people’s access to safe and sustainable livelihoods, improved their social networks and support mechanisms, and increased their levels of wellbeing and confidence.

The report summarises the key findings of the assessment and highlights recommendations from lessons learned.
