YARID has nearly 10 years experience running programs and mobilizing refugee youth in Kampala. YARID is especially strong within the Great Lakes region refugee communities. We have large and small partners in the grassroots and NGO levels within Kampala. YARID co-facilitates other grassroots refugee non-profit groups in an education and refugee rights collaborative.
Our team includes career developers, employment and market trend researchers, and education systems analysts. With over three years experience in online higher education and researching labor markets around the globe, our team is able to assess how well the education system is preparing future employees for the workforce. In addition, our project lead served as Career Developer preparing newly arrived refugees and unemployed nationals for the workforce in the U.S. through financial literacy education, resume building, interviewing skills, and developing employer relationships. Our expertise combined creates a strong team able to achieve our vision for youth employment.
