Education & Employment

We’re addressing the problem of a global skills gap by preparing young people to succeed in the jobs employers are seeking to fill.

A critical gap is the ability of young people to demonstrate the life and work readiness skills needed in the job market. Our Passport to Success® life skills curriculum and vocational and technical training expertise have helped more 185,000 young men and women become the confident, reliable team players companies want to hire. With a demand-driven approach, we constantly refine how we meet partner and market needs.

As we support young people on the path to employment and economic independence, we're always working to ensure that this kind of positive change is sustainable after an initiative ends. We have a decades-long history of focusing on maximizing impact through partnerships and strengthening partners' capacity to deliver youth-friendly employability services.

Visit the IYF library to consult the education and employment resources we've shared with the partners and youth development community, including Creating Opportunities for Youth in Hospitality, with partner Hilton. You'll also find toolkits and guides for topics such as career guidance, internships, and alliance-building.
