Published on June 24, 2014 um 11:18
Summary of your idea
The main objective is to use Radio in the dissemination of employability and enterprise modules to youths who are in the process of transiting from school-to-work as well as go into entrepreneurship. The activities include a live training radio session on employability skills, a live-call-in session where young people ask questions on the job market and guide on how to start a business venture, a social media platform where further questions are discussed and answers provided as well as job opportunities made available for job seekers and information on business support grants made available for budding entrepreneurs. A mobile application will be developed for the programme which will enable subscribers and listeners have access to job alerts, business support tips, seed funding opportunities and personal development ideas.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Global youth unemployment rate currently stands at an all-time high which is a huge worry to many governments and society at large. Youths between the ages of 18-35 who lack adequate employability and enterprise skills and the needed local know-how on entrepreneurship and work-readiness. Success of the idea is to be measured on dedicated social media platforms which will track information and module usage by subscribers and listeners as well as the number of listeners and subscribers who go on to secure job placements and start their own businesses as a result. The expected impact is believed to be over 20 million peoples both direct and on-line followership.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The business model is an information-driven model where the idea gets funded by corporate organizations who buys slot during the show, the download of the application by listeners. The financing will be done with sponsorship deals gotten from brands willing to advertise on radio as well as use their marketing budget to reach the youth population. Collaborators are radio stations, studio houses, production agencies and employers of labour as well as business owners.
