According to bank documents, the project aims to empower 6,000 vulnerable, disadvantaged youth in 25 of Mongolia’s poorest rural districts across five provinces with socioemotional skills for improved performance in school and preparation for entry into the labor market. This will be achieved through a school-based, community-driven youth program for supporting acquisition of socioemotional skills that are linked not just to success in school, but are also highly valued in the labor market. Older youths will receive training targeted more specifically to enhancing entrepreneurial knowledge and skills. The project will address the largely unmet need for socioemotional and entrepreneurship skills stemming from extremely limited labor market opportunities that lead to high inactivity among youth in these locations and a job profile dominated by traditional herding, unpaid work and self-employment in the informal sector.
