The theme for this year’s UN World Youth Skills Day 2023 is to empower teachers, trainers and youth for a transformative future. It highlights the important role that teachers, trainers and other educators play in equipping young people with the skills to enter the labor market and become actively involved in their communities and society. In December 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution declaring July 15 as World Youth Skills Day. The goal is to achieve better socio-economic conditions for today’s youth as a means of combating unemployment and underemployment.
