AIESEC in Johor Bahru Aspires to Combat Youth Unemployment with Their New Initiative: AyouthModel

A Youth Model Ambassador Campaign by AIESEC in Johor Bahru

Youth unemployment has been an issue in the past years, with several causes behind it. Fresh graduates would have to wait for months before landing a job, and with the current pandemic, many are left unemployed. This is precisely why AYouthModel is launched and will be held throughout June.

A Youth Model (AYM) is an ambassador campaign that aims to encourage youths to grow their potential through training and industrial exposure that are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The main objective is to bridge the gap between youth and the corporate world through specific and detailed sharing sessions. Moreover, A Youth Model aims to provide youth with work-ready skills and prepare them for the realities of the after-grad environment.

With the tagline ‘Empowering to Empower’, they seek for ambassadors who can create a positive environment and inspire others to do the same. AYM ambassadors will be playing the roles of influencers and delegates to encourage networking activities, participate in workshops, share their learnings on personal social media and join in future flagship events.
