Youth Ready

Download Publication

Youth Ready helps disadvantaged young people discover their potential, plan for their future, and gain the skills, support, and resources they need to succeed in both work and life. Rooted in the principles of Positive Youth Development, Youth Ready helps youth build a positive self-identify in a supportive collaborative learning environment. Youth Ready projects are structured around a framework called the “Viability Journey” - a two-phased sequence of learning activities and skills development for youth, who are organised into mutually supportive and accountable peer cohort groups. World Vision is beginning to pilot an adaptation of the model designed together with Microsoft and Intel that integrates ICT skills and an online youth employment portal to help youth explore careers, get online training and certification, and access a job match function designed for them.
