IREX’s Youth Essential Skills (YES) methodology is a comprehensive approach to training young people for the opportunities and challenges of the future by strengthening crucial soft skills.
These skills are so important that we call them essential skills. They are part of our Essential Skills approach. These research-backed skills have been proven to contribute to workforce and entrepreneurial success, civic participation, resilience, and youth leadership.
We've used the Essential Skills approach to train youth in 18 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East & North Africa, and the United States.
