Establishment of the Youth Employment and Social Support Operation is targeted at the poorest of the poor and to address youth unemployment in the country.

Twenty (20) States of the Federation including Oyo State took part in the design of the support operation with the Federal Government.

Interestingly, only seven (7) States including Oyo State were able to meet the criteria for participation in the 1st phase of the support operation.

The Youth Empowerment Scheme of Oyo State (YES-O) initiated by the administration of Senator Abiola Ajimobi qualified Oyo State for the intervention

Our Vision

Our Mission

Our Objectives

To increase access of the poor and vulnerable, using improved safety nets systems, to youth employment opportunities in all participating states and to provide targeted grant transfers to the poor, vulnerable and internally displaced people in the North East States
  • Component 1: Coordination: Strengthening SSN systems, M&E, Reporting and Management of Accounts
  • Component 2: Public Workfare: To provide labour intensive short-term work opportunities for youths and women with less than JSS3 education and extended to the North East.
  • Component 3: Skills for Job: – To provide economically viable skill sets to youths and women with more than JSS3 education and extended to the North East.
  • Component 4: Targeted Grant Transfer To provide Grant Transfers to IDPs, Individuals and Households for relocation and or resettlement.

According to the World Bank, studies carried out in the Year 2011 by the National Bureau of Statistics indicated that 51% of the entire population of the country is the youths while the rate of unemployment among them is 37%.

The study also showed that 70% of the unemployed youths are uneducated and without skills while most of the educated ones are unemployed.

The introduction of the Public Workfare (PWF) and Skills for Job (S4J) components of the Support Operation are therefore to provide immediate labour intensive job opportunity to youths and make them employable by impacting skills knowledge in them, while Targeted Grant Transfer came into being as a result of the need to release and resettle Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the North East States of the Federation..
