The Youth to Work Programme 2019

Standard Chartered
Bank in partnership with Challenges Uganda launched a 3-month
youth employability programme under its Futuremakers initiative
dubbed Youth to Work Programme. At Standard Chartered, they believe everyone
deserves the opportunity to learn, earn and grow. Globally, more than 200
million young people often disproportionately impacted by the challenges of
inequality are out of work or live in low-income poverty, and that’s just not
good enough. With the Futuremakers by Standard Chartered initiative, the bank
invites disadvantaged young people especially girls and the visually impaired
to gain new skills and expertise to improve their chances of getting a job or
starting their own business. The objective of the Youth to Work programme is to
position and equip young people with skills and opportunities to create
economic and employment changes across the economy for sustainable and
measurable impact. In this regard, young people will become implementers of
change, rather than standalone programme beneficiaries. Through a 3-month
training, youth will be able to develop & refine their skills, work with
inspiring entrepreneurs, acquire a Level 5 certificate from the Chartered
