Due to the increased demand from our registered youth school-leavers who are struggling to make their transition from school to work. We deliver our Career & Work-Ready Training Workshops every two weeks at TYEE Youth Career Centre, Fifita House Building, Mailetaha in Nuku'alofa.
What our participating youths say;
"I feel inspired, part of it because of what I learned, but for me, most of it from the passion and desire our trainer has to run to our aid, the work done here is probably the only reason why there is still hope for a better Tonga. A good teacher gives advice but a great teacher inspires! And I believe not only I but the many more before us and still to come will undoubtedly be inspired". -O.N.Mafi.
"I've had the best week learning and growing. I also met new people and was nice to know them. I do hope youth in Tonga could know the loveliness of life being taught in this workshop. Before getting a job, knowing yourself and what you can do comes first. Learning about my vision board motivates and encourages me to do better. I know I can do greater things in life when I learn to believe in myself first." -L. Paunga
"I am a survivor because I am here. I love how the workshops were a short period of time but also very meaningful actually allowing us to leave for home more energised and determined for better days to come. Baby steps in helping ourselves and influencing others. "A job is a job" it still pays the same dollar of any other job".-S.Tau'ataina.
AUGUST 12th of Every Year is International Youth Day! This year's 2019 International Youth Day's theme is "Transforming Education, and Tonga has localised this theme to cater for Tonga Youth Stakeholders needs in education in which is translated into; "Fakalakalaka e founga ‘o e ako ki hono fakaivia e mo’ui lotolu".
This year's theme highlights efforts to make education more inclusive and accessible for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves. Rooted in Goal 4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development - "to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all".
International Youth Day 2019 will examine how Governments, young people, youth-led and youth-focused organisations, as well as other stakeholders are transforming education so that it becomes a powerful tool to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Agenda 4 of the 2030 SDG is one of the TYEE's focused areas, working with a mission; "To bridge the gap by building the capacity of the youth to embark on their journey, to make a life they aspire to live through appropriate and relevant connections to work-readiness and life-skills training opportunities, employment opportunities, creating employment opportunities through entrepreneurship (and information and communications technology (ICT), and mentorship support".
Bridging the skills and opportunity gaps for TYEE participating youth in a week-long Training Workshops at TYEE Training Room at Fifita House Building. These training workshops provide learning opportunities and support to each participating youth member who is making their transition to work, meaningful. "Finding Your Own Unique Career Pathway & Be Work Ready" training workshops give hope and a second chance to those young people who are serious about making a difference in their lives and getting ahead in life.
TYEE's training work-space has the capacity to hold up to 20 participants in one seating. This space also compliments a small set up for our tech-hub to assist our participants with accessing the computers and upskilling themselves in the basic Microsoft Office Suite while they are equipped with the skills to prepare their own job application letter, CV, interview preparations and presentations, and much more.
Post the training workshops, TYEE Recruitment Service Team works directly with the participating youth by connecting them with the available job vacancies that are being made available to TYEE Career Centre through partnering with our local employers.
With over thousands of young school leavers who are registered at TYEE program to date, more than 50% of them have been supported and connected with employment placements in Tonga alone. TYEE is forever grateful to our loyal local partner employers for believing in us!
We assist young people aged 18 – 29 years to find jobs, access training opportunities, or to start their own jobs being young entrepreneurs. We place a particular emphasis on those young people who, due to personal circumstances, left school early and are considered school “drop-outs”.
To the employers who are still looking for new staff or have vacancies that are still remaining unfilled to contact TYEE for your staffing solution and options. Saves you precious time and money!
"I did not complete my education, I got married and had my kids. I never thought I would have a second chance to be employed after I got married with kids. Knowing TYEE now, TYEE gave me hope! I am now in full-time employment". ~TYEE youth member & participant
"Good morning TYEE thank you so much for helping me out during the past few weeks. I managed to attend the interview yesterday and it was well. I was just told to wait for the offer letter but all in all, if it wasn’t for your help I would not have been able to be pushed out of my comfort zone so malo aupito" ~TYEE youth member & participant.
