NEO Jamaica Employers’ Forum

On Tuesday, December 6, 2016, NEO Jamaica hosted its first event, an Employers’ Forum at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. The purpose of the Forum was to introduce to the Jamaican private sector and international stakeholders, the Inter-American Development Bank-funded New Employment Opportunities for Youth in Jamaica Project (NEO).

NEO seeks to increase job opportunities for poor, vulnerable and low- income Jamaican young people ages 17 to 29. The expected results are to broaden the quality and relevance of training programmes and employment systems for vulnerable young people in the country. The forum engaged employers’ to assist with the internship and employment placements of more than 10,000 youth beneficiaries over the next three years.
