EDC’s Skills and Knowledge for Youth Employment (SKYE) project in Guyana administered a coaching survey to more than 300 project training graduates. The purposes of the survey were to assess how helpful the coaches were for youth and which aspects of the coaching were most useful for youth when looking for a job, entering the workforce, or starting their own business.
- 67 percent of youth employed by someone else said coaching was helpful in looking for a job.
- 82 percent of self-employed youth said coaching was helpful in starting their business.
- 81 percent of youth reported that they felt more self-confident from their coaching experience.
