About This Project: 
Per KYSD – “Unemployment is the most important issue confronting youth, especially females, in Cambodia.  Our labor force increases by 300,000+ per year in a population of 14 million. About 15% of youth (15-24) are unemployed.  The objective of the project posted here is ultimately poverty reduction.

One volunteer & one staff member will conduct IT classes and job preparation courses for 100 students, free of charge for a year (1 session per quarter, with 25 students per session).  We expect that these hundred can then teach 100 more.  Our IT classes will provide office skills, communication skills, online researching, and general knowledge of how to use computers in the workplace.  We will teach basic Word, Excel, PowerPoint, browsing, and emailing.  Our job training courses will center on how to find a job, how to write a CV/resume, how to interview, and how to be a good staff member.  Following these courses, we will take our students to visit banks, NGOs, and other companies to learn how they operate and to seek internships.”
