Youth Employment Network Gambia Chapter (YEN Gambia) will host a national youth employment forum on 8 March 2012 to be held at the Ministry of Trade, Regional Integration and Employment.

The forum will be preceded by a procession from the Arch 22 in Banjul.

According to the national coordinating team, the aim of the event is to sensitize young people and partners on youth employment issues as well as to profile the network.

The national event is being supported by the Gambia YMCA and would bring together ministers, youth leaders and activists from different parts of the country.

“Over the past few weeks, YEN had series of radio talk shows on youth employment and these programmes were very successful,” the network stated.

YEN was established in The Gambia in 2002, as a National Network of Youth Organizations advocating for youth employment and sustainable livelihoods.
