Take Actions that Matter
Generation Unlimited Skill Action Hub
Explore our Action Hub for steps you can take to support young people’s skilling journeys. Each action will go some way towards equipping young people with the full set of skills needed for the future of work and life.
Get involved today. Your input counts whether you’re a young person on your own skilling journey, or part of an organization that relies on a skilled workforce. Or perhaps you work for a government, non-governmental organization or foundation that’s committed to equality of opportunity for youth.
Take Actions That Matter as an Organization
Taibat Hussain, Nigeria: “Being solutions-oriented is a skill that I have found to be most valuable.”
Taibat has leveraged her skills to be able to identify what allows gender-based violence to continue unabated and has effectively driven advocacy to address this within her community
Najib Matar, Lebanon: “I have trained over 400 young people on conflict transformation, negotiation skills, gender and positive masculinities, and research skills.”
Through his initiative Act4Impact, Najib has both fostered his own entrepreneurial skills and provided training for hundreds of young people to help create positive change in his community.
Praise Majwafi, South Africa: “I hope to mobilize the biggest international cohort of young skilled individuals, capable of solving any problem presented to them. Think of us as the Avengers, only better.”
Praise knows how important it is to involve young people in creating change and has utilized his skills to successfully advocate for the inclusion of young people in decision-making positions.
Tatenda Churu, Zimbabwe: “I have to be a mentor and a coach, so they not only understand ‘what’ needs to be done but also the ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘when’."
As head of the Youth Alliance for Safer Cities which aims to promote safe spaces and decent work for Zimbabwe's young people, Tatenda has built her skills as a leader inspiring the rest of the team.
As Egypt's Minister of International Cooperation, the focus of Generation Unlimited Global Leadership Council member Dr Rania Al-Mashat has been on international partnerships for sustainable development, to be able to go from pledges to implementation. "This includes curating public-private partnerships to accelerate progress towards development. Incorporating youth into this equation by hearing their voice would be the game changer, including them as part of the design and architecture of on-ground implementation," she told Generation Unlimited.
