On International Youth Day, August 12, the African Development Bank reaffirms its commitment to African youth, its future. Thanks to several Bank initiatives, a new generation of Africans is taking hold of its destiny. Through initiatives such as Jobs for Youth in Africa (JfYA), Empowering Novel Agri-Business-Led Employment (ENABLE) Youth, and Boost Africa, the AfDB is equipping young people with the right skills for business and employment. AfDB has also strengthened its support for science, technology and innovation training.
