The Friedrich Ebert Stiftung will be partnering with YouthLab to host the first 2017 skills festival in North West. YouthLab assist young people in the community to develop a skills festival which invites organisations such as Universities, NYDA, SEFA, SEDA and other support structures to exhibit information that may assist various economic endeavours.
Mini economic workshops including financial literacy, CV writing, business funding, etc. will be hosted at the festival based on the needs identified in the asset mapping workshops. Young people who attended the Green Innovation boot camp and other youth entrepreneurs will be invited to exhibit and sell at the festival giving them an opportunity to get going and market to the community.
