Learn about Local Labor Market Assessments and how youth-serving organizations can use such assessments in their work. Thursday, April 28, 9-10am ET Advance registration required. Register here to join the discussion! Many labor market assessments provide important data on national employment trends and skills requirements so as to inform national-level policies and programs. But how can data from labor market assessments be put into use by youth-serving organizations at the local level-- those who are closest to young people and preparing them for the workforce? This webinar will offer insights on how to carry out Local Labor Market Assessments (LLMA), and feature the experiences of a youth-serving organization in Rwanda that has been implementing LLMAs over the past few years. We will discuss how LLMAs are most useful when they are not a one-time product, but rather as an ongoing process that is implemented and regularly updated by local system actors. Speakers will bring perspectives of both headquarters and field-based technical staff from organizations including FHI 360 and IESC, including:
  • Chris Murray, Senior International Technical Advisor, Education Development Center
  • Phanuel Sindayiheba, Program Manager, AEE Rwanda
  • Moderator: Rachel Blum, Senior Technical Advisor, Education Development Center
This webinar is open to all and will be especially useful to youth-serving organizations, those supporting workforce development, and international development practitioners involved in youth employment and skills development. Presented by USAID's YouthPower 2: Learning and Evaluation Activity, the Business, Entrepreneurship, and Private Sector Engagement (BEPSE) Community of Practice (CoP), a group of youth, practitioners in youth-serving organizations, and policymakers. This event will include English closed captioning (cc).
