The YouthWin through Economic Participation (YEP) program is a USAID-funded activity under the USAID Kunci Initiative aimed at workforce development for poor and vulnerable youth in Indonesia. The YEP activity will create systemic change in how, where, and what economic skills are taught to empower poor and vulnerable youth in Indonesia. By teaching foundational economic skills to poor and vulnerable youth in Indonesia, YEP will facilitate increased employment, better performance in the workplace, and greater inclusion in the economy and financial system.
Financial Markets International (FMI), an American consulting firm, in partnership with the International Youth Foundation (IYF), an INGO; the Otoritas Jasa Keuangan (OJK), Indonesia’s Securities Regulator; and various other partners will implement this program for USAID.
