The United States Agency for International Development’ YouLead programme and Microsoft Sri Lanka signed a partnership to launch the new YouthWorks information technology portal at the Ministry of Skills Development and Vocational Training in Colombo today (Feb. 28).
 
The portal will provide career guidance, technical and vocational courses, a mentorship platform, job placements, and a variety of other tools to support Sri Lanka’s young job-seekers and entrepreneurs.
 
YouLead will work with Microsoft, the Ministry of Skills Development and Vocational Training, and the private sector to develop and upload content for the YouthWorks portal in Sinhala, Tamil and English. 
 
The content will be specifically customized to Sri Lanka’s rapidly growing vocational education and employment needs.
 
USAID funds YouthWorks under its $ 12 million YouLead initiative that supports youth employability, entrepreneurship, and skills development in Sri Lanka.
