Enhancing Women's Access to Employment

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has partnered with PADF to support the International Youth Foundation’s Caribbean Youth Empowerment Program (CYEP), which equips at-risk youth with the vocational and life skills needed to develop sustainable livelihoods.

The Empowerment of Young Women Project (YWEP) equipped vulnerable young women with the technical, vocational, and life skills needed to develop sustainable livelihoods. The project specifically targeted women between the ages of 16 to 35 who were under or unemployed, lacked the skills to participate in an increasingly service-oriented economy, and had a desire to launch microenterprises. The participants received job training and placement services upon successful completion of the course of their choosing, and were also offered entrepreneurial business development services.
