During the period February  – April 2019, the Cadena team has implemented different train-the-trainer (TOT) sessions to support the job-readiness component under the Youth Entrepreneurship and Employment Project (YEEP) in Liberia. The TOT sessions have been provided to University of Liberia student affairs staff, department heads and steering committee representatives, as well as to selected high school teachers (included in the pilot programme). The TOT covered three main topics to mention; Job Readiness, Work-place Based Learning  and Career Guidance. In addition Employability skills training has been provided to students of the University of Liberia who now have been placed with different employers and companies. The team continues to support intern placement, monitoring and follow-up; including employer mentoring to improve job readiness services as an active labor market initiative aimed to reducing unemployment.
