|Overview : |
The Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sport and Culture Development (MYSC) was established to create an enabling environment for youth empowerment, sport development and preservation of culture and heritage in collaboration with relevant stakeholders. The Ministry delivers its mandate through six functions namely Youth Empowerment; Sport and Recreation; Arts and Culture; the Department National Service and Internship (DNSI); the Botswana National Library Services (BNLS); and the Botswana National Records and Archives Services (BNARS). The Department of National Service and Internship (DNSI) was established to deliver three volunteer programmes, namely: the Botswana National Service Programme (BNSP), the National Internship Programme (NIP) and the Graduate Volunteer Scheme (GVS). These three programmes were established to facilitate skills transfer and to improve the marketability and employability of youth. The goal is to give youth participants an opportunity to gain valuable work experience necessary to enter the job market.
The Ministry has therefore requested the support of UNDP Botswana to procure the services of a consultant who will undertake this assignment and use the findings to offer guidance to MYSC on how to improve the current programme and/or develop a new one. The consultancy will be done under the auspices of a project titled: “Support to the Fulfilment of Human Rights, Access to Justice and Empowerment of Women and Youth Project” (2018 – 2021) (“the Project”).
