Speaking with journalists, the Lead facilitator and Chief Executive Officer, Global Concept, Mr. Olaonipekun Kazeem, explained that the reason for focusing  on teenagers was to expose them to  basic knowledge relating to their careers, noting that most young people got into the universities  without clarity about the future.

He attributed that  to the major cause of the rise in unemployment. In a bid to address  this, Kazeem, said, “We are looking at  ways to tackle this from the grassroots by helping teenagers to identify their areas of strength and interest ,  as well as  exposing them to other opportunities that can be available for them to choose from”.

The programme according to him, would run for five days, at the end of which seven different industries would be visited by the students.

The beneficiaries he said, were students drawn from both private and public schools.
