NaBCO to end by September 1 – Details
The National Builder’s Corps (NaBCo) programme, which was initially to run for three years and extended for an additional year, will be completed by 1st September 2022.
With over 100,000 participants, the program has helped thousands of recent graduates get ready for the workforce.
In total, over GHC 2.2 billion has been invested so far, according to the Finance Minister.
The way forward after NABCo exit
As they exit the programme, the minister stated, the current cohort on the program is urged to use the YouStart initiative and other existing programs to aid in the effort of building an entrepreneurial nation.
Details of the YouStart Initiative
YouStart is an initiative that will lead to more jobs in the country. With the YouStart Initiative, Ghana may end its unemployment problem.
Trainees who are about to leave the NABCO Scheme but have an interest in starting their own business can benefit greatly from a more focused approach and encouragement to do so through YouStart.
With the implementation of the NABCo YouStart Initiative, 1 million jobs will be created. In order to alleviate the country’s youth unemployment problem, the government seeks to put appropriate measures in place to create 300,000 new businesses owners.

About the NABCo Initiative
On Tuesday, May 1, 2018, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo launched the NaBCO initiative.
The President of Ghana, while launching the programme was confident that by the time NABCO trainees exited the scheme, trainees would have had the necessary work readiness skills and experience to land a job as a recent grad, which is typically cited as a barrier to employment.
