Audit of USAID/Jordan’s Youth: Work Jordan Program.

Country: Jordan
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID

As part of the ongoing cooperation between Jordan and the United States in addressing the needs of vulnerable Jordanian youth, the two countries launched the Youth: Work Jordan Program in 2009.

This 5-year, $30 million project funded by USAID and administered by the International Youth Organization will help the Government of Jordan partner with the private sector and civil society organizations to institutionalize a responsive, demand-driven program that will meet the needs of vulnerable youth and their communities.

Initially, the program will target six communities in Jordan to provide opportunities for marginalized youth 15–24 years of age who are out of school and unemployed. The program will equip them with the skills to find employment, become active and positive agents of change within their communities, adopt healthier lifestyles, and gain access to the public services that they need.

This audit will determine whether the Youth: Work Jordan Program is providing disadvantaged youth with basic employment skills and entrepreneurial training that result in employment and the establishment of enterprises and businesses.
