The training programme was part of activities scheduled during the just-concluded Nasarawa State Fair which was flagged off by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, in collaboration with the state government.
The fair was triggered by the increase in the unemployment rate which currently sits at 27.1 percent.
The 3-week programme exposed the youths to 21st century employability skills, including Leadership training, Ethics, C.V writing, Goal setting, Communication skills, Business model canvas, Business plan writing, among others.
So far, the Poise Graduate Finishing Academy has recorded a total of 17,000 beneficiaries from Lagos, and Edo States, respectively.
According to the programme planners, Poise Nigeria, the vision for the training and fair is to create a pool of skillful employers, entrepreneurs and job creators in every state.
