According to this document, 40 young people settled in Armenia will have an opportunity to participate at YSU in special trainings aimed at teaching the peculiarities of the Armenian labor market.
The project is intended for young people from conflict zones, especially from Syria and Ukraine, as well as those from Javakhk, who have a higher education but are in need of the necessary specialization to become more competitive in the Armenian labor market.
YSU Rector Aram Simonyan highlighted the signing of the memorandum, noting that such programs should be more purposeful, as Armenia should be ready to support its repatriated people in the case.
World Vision Armenia Operations Director Shaghik Marukhyan thanked YSU Rector for supporting this important work: "It is a great honor for us to work with YSU as a partner. World Vision Armenia is actively working with both children and youth, whose unemployment rate is over 40%, about 2.5 times higher than the average unemployment rate in Armenia. That is why we need first of all to develop their skills in Armenian language to help them achieve success."
YSU Alumni and Career Center Director Lilit Hakobyan is also very hopeful about the program because it can also solve social problems.
For example, Syrian Armenians are now known mainly in Armenia as skilled craftsmen, which is good but creates some public stratum.
It is anticipated that after the completion of the project its participants will be able to find jobs in the Armenian banking system, telecommunication companies, as well as in a number of other spheres.
The program is fully financed by the US Department of State's Bureau of Refugees and Migration.
