Youth Employment Support Scheme

(YESS)

The Youth Employment Support Scheme is co-funded by the Irish Government, the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020

 

The Youth Employment Support Scheme (YESS) is a work experience placement programme which is specifically targeted at young jobseekers aged 18-24 years of age who are long-term unemployed or who face barriers to employment.

The YESS will aim to provide jobseekers with the opportunity to learn basic work and social skills in a supportive environment while on a work placement. The scheme will provide a supportive structure for participants, including case worker support for both Participants Hosts and jobseekers.

 

While participation on the YESS will be wholly voluntary for both parties involved, there will be certain qualifying and eligibility conditions that both Placement Hosts and jobseekers will have to satisfy.
