WHAT : Workforce Development
Growing Tomorrow’s Workforce Today
Whether moving away from farming or emerging from conflict, Tanager prepares youth to succeed in the labor workforce. We identify the human capital needs of the marketplace, mentor youth to acquire essential hard and soft skills, and place youth with businesses where they can excel. We bring youth, local employers, and governments together to increase youth’s access to jobs and strengthen the workforce for a more vibrant, stable economy.

They also learn critical soft skills to obtain and retain employment, and receive certifications endorsed by the Ministry of Education upon graduating. Read more.
