WAVE

West African Vocational Education (WAVE) is a Nigerian-based social enterprise that addresses widespread youth unemployment in West Africa by training underserved but self-motivated youth with industry relevant work skills and crucial employability skills.

We foster the inclusion of young people in the workforce through our ‘‘hire for attitude, train for skill’’ philosophy that focuses on evaluating EQ and soft skills. We help them move from subsistence farming and urban street hawking to more meaningful and promising jobs.

In WAVE’s 5 years of existence, WAVE has helped thousands of people gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering the most comprehensive, relevant, and valuable exchange programs available.

WAVE’s goal is to provide youth in West Africa the necessary employment skills to lift themselves out of poverty, contributing to their communities and the nation’s economy. The WAVE model creates an eco-system of driven and self-reliant youth and innovative business leaders that champion our “hire for attitude, train for skill” approach.

We will “up-skill” millions of youth to fill stable jobs that transform their incomes thereby driving scalable, replicable and sustainable impact and converting Africa’s youth from demographic liabilities to “demographic dividends”: Scale: By 2019, WAVE aims to train 25,000 youth annually, having cumulatively trained 50,000 youth in marketable skills to reach their true potential and supported them in stable jobs.

Income Transformation: On average, WAVE alumni will experience an income transformation of 3-4 times their baseline income (from $2/day to $6-8/day) through placements in frontline hospitality and retail jobs. Economic Development: Ultimately, our simple training and job placement model has the potential to restore dignity and enhance livelihoods for millions of West African youth, thereby restoring the social fabric of the region.
