Youth Apprenticeship Program (YAP)
Sinapi Aba is passionate about building a community where everyone cares for each other as enshrined in its vision statement: ‘Building a nation under the almighty God, where the strong helps the weak and all people have the dignity to providing for one self, the church and the community’. One of the means employed by Sinapi Aba to achieve this is through its Youth Apprenticeship Program (YAP).
YAP was birthed in 2003 to support the vulnerable youth in Ghana to acquire employable skills so they can make meaningful contribution to themselves and society. Beneficiaries are selected through rigorous interview processes and orientation before they are attached to professionals (Trade Masters) who provide them with hands-on training for two years and six months. Beneficiaries have the responsibility of choosing the trade they so desire to learn guided by the YAP team.
