YEA directors ordered to proceed on leave

Government has asked all ten regional directors of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) to proceed on leave.
The directors were given letters to embark on leave after a meeting with the new Chief Executive officer of the agency Justin Kodua Frimpong.

A letter written to the directors said: “You are kindly requested to proceed on your 2017 annual leave effective Monday, 3 April 2017, to 26 May 2017.”
The letter also directed them to hand over all official documents and properties their possession to acting deputy chief executive officer (operations).

The YEA is an act of parliament, and job security of employees protected by the law.

The Youth Employment Agency was established under the Youth Employment Act 2015 (Act 887) to empower young people to contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic and sustainable development of the nation.
Its objective is to support the youth between the ages of 15 to 35 years through skills training and internship modules to transit from a situation of unemployment to that of employment.

To ensure sustainability, the policy focus of YEA was changed in 2009 from the traditional modules which have pay roll implications to the self employment modules such as Trades and Vocation modules through public private partnership so as to reduce the burden on payment of stipend for the Paid Internship Module.
