Citi Indonesia (Citibank), through its umbrella theme for entire community activities known as Citi Peka (caring and creating something meaningful), together with the non-profit organization Indonesian Business Links (IBL), is holding Skilled Youth Program.
This program is aimed at opening up better economic opportunities for the younger generations through capacity building and preparing them for work as well as to become successful entrepreneurs.
“Citi Indonesia’s collaboration with IBL is an example of a multi-stakeholder partnership in support of the implementation of the government’s Sustainable Development Goals (TPB). We believe that youth unemployment will be overcome if the business sector, government, civil society organizations and academia can work together in terms of capacity building, opening up job opportunities, encouraging entrepreneurship, and creating favorable work environments. Using the Skilled Youth-Working and Skilled Youth-Entrepreneurial approaches, the Skilled Youth program provides opportunities for young people to improve their capabilities, as well as obtain better economic opportunities for themselves and the people around them.” –Chairman of the Board of Patrons of Indonesia Business Links Heru Prasetyo–
