The World Youth Skills Day is a United Nation (UN) designated day that seeks to empower youth, generate greater awareness, discussion on the importance of technical and vocational education, training and the development of other skills relevant to both local and global economies.

It is hoped that it will contribute to reducing unemployment and underemployment among the youth across the globe.

The aim of WYSD is to recognize the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work and entrepreneurship, and to highlight the crucial role of skilled youth in addressing current and future global challenges.
