GIS seeks to create opportunity for eligible graduate youths to be placed as interns in reputable public/private sector firms to enhance building the manpower requirement to drive the Nation’s Transformation Agenda and Vision 20:2020. The Scheme will employ 50,000 youth across the country to ensure that their skills have been developed towards empowering them to be employable in the short/medium/long term.
