opportunities for youth; provide quality market driven vocational,

government by advocating in policy amendment and budget allocation.
CREATIVE working area covers 20 villages in Sukabumi and Garut district,
linked to youth groups, Community Based Organization, vocational
institution, local government and local businesses.
this consultancy is to facilitate the empowerment of youth and how to
voice their needs in relevant to youth employment. National Statistic
Body (Badan Pusat Statistik) through National Employment Survey in 2014
reported that number of unemployment in Indonesia has reached 7 million
people, 60% of those are youth (age 15 – 24). Most of youth deal with
lack of access to employment during the transition period from school.
National Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration highlighted the gaps
and challenges of youth employment issues such as largest share of
employed youth remains in non-formal sectors, limited job opportunities,
low entrepreneurship mindset and lack of statistic data. While other
youth employment initiative, called IYEN (Indonesia Youth Employment
Network), addressed high unemployment because of unmatched skill and
educational background of labor supply with demand; unmet competency
requirement; and personal judgment (picking the right job with the right
salary). Those mentioned employment challenges would be sensitized over
the youth in target districts and transformed into real advocacy action
