FG/UNDP Launch Paid Internship Programme For Unemployed Nigerian Youths

To address youth unemployment in Nigeria, the Federal Government has started the Nigeria Jubilee Fellowship Program (NJFP) in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

A paid internship program for young people called NJFP seeks to reduce both underemployment and unemployment in Nigeria.

The alarming unemployment rate and the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are just two factors affecting graduates’ ability to find employment in the nation.

This suggests that one in three Nigerians are looking for jobs right now.

In Nigeria, most fresh graduates lack the necessary abilities to get employed in the modern world. This is why the Federal Government, the UNDP, European Union, and other partners, are seeking to help reduce unemployment in Nigeria and provide the needed skills for Nigeria’s teaming youths with the launch of this programme.

According to statistics, about 25 million graduates nationwide are still unemployed. The Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme (NJFP) strives to close this opportunity gap for young, talented Nigerians by connecting them to regional opportunities that will support their success as they launch their careers.

The programme, in the first phase, will match 20,000 graduates from the 36 states and the FCT with paid jobs in different sectors.

According to FG, the portal will soon open for the second phase of the programme. Join our telegram channel to get updates upon commencement.
