Using AI to Empower Jamaican Youth for the Future of Work

To meet current and evolving industry demands, young people need the relevant skills — an area in which traditional education and vocational training programs fall short. The situation is particularly challenging for low-income and under-employed youth in developing countries, who face significant obstacles to accessing quality education and training opportunities.
