It will now be easier for unemployed youths in Port Moresby to access employment opportunities.
The Urban Youth Employment Project (UYEP) gives a second chance to youths to acquire knowledge and skills.
Yesterday, over 200 youths passed out after three weeks of technical and business skills training.
This is the first batch students doing pre- employment training under the Urban Youth Employment Project 2014.
Present at the occasion was the Prime Minister’s wife Linda Babao, NCDC Deputy City Manager, Honk Kiap, and other representatives of partner organisations.
Mr Kiap said the project had received much criticism but turns out to be successful.
This is an intervention project of the National government implemented by NCDC. It aims to help unemployed youths to find employment.
Trainer Rachael Konaka said the project has provided youth’s many opportunities and benefits. Many of them are those pushed out by the formal education system.
Mrs Konaka said these students are very interested and have shown maturity and eagerness to learn.
