BTAC EVENTS

Youth of Africa Career Development (YACD)


is a US based 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.  YACD’s mission is to provide career training and workforce readiness support to youth that live in Africa.  YACD has collaborated with Bridge to Africa Connection, Inc. on a very unique & personalized pilot program that started on October 13, 2020.  The first roll out of this training specifically has targeted recent junior high school graduates whom are transitioning into the senior high school level. 

The core purpose of this program is to better equip existing BTAC’s program participants with soft skills that can be used within any workplace.  Through YACD’s career development curriculum, students are trained through several workplace role examples & needed skills that highlight specialized trainings in the areas such as resolving conflicts, effective communication skills, workplace ethics, goal setting & various other layers of workplace professional development.  YACD is also ensuring that BTAC’s students are adequately prepared to select a required major during their transition into Ghana’s high school system. 

Unlike many other countries around the world, Ghana’s Ministry of Education requires that all incoming high school students select a major before their entrance into senior high school.  For this reason, our program further supports youth with needed clarity & navigation through this system.  Every YACD student is provided a career assessment test which further reinforces their selected high school major & future career path option possibilities.  Our program also prepares youth to utilize life skills for their future success.  These life skills support our participants irrespective of their individual completions of their work at the secondary and/or college education levels.  The Youth of Africa Career Development is extremely proud to be in such a meaningful partnership with Bridge to Africa Connection, Inc.
