The aim of this program is to bridge young people with job opportunities by collaborating with stakeholders including schools and the private sector, in supporting youth through job readiness skills, financial education, entrepreneurship, and vocational counselling training.

Through the Skills to Succeed program, Save the Children Indonesia implemented 5 skills that students need to have through the development of soft skills learning modules. These skills are; positive self-concept, self-control, skills in creative and critical thinking, communication skills and social skills. During the program, trainings have been carried out for teachers as facilitators in delivering soft skills modules in classroom learning.

The employability skills program has always been a strength for the project, not only consists of, career counselling, financial literacy and entrepreneurship provided to youth in out of school youth and in school youth. In Indonesia, the project has been able to serve in total more than 68,000 youth from 2014, consist of 63.065 from in school youth and 5,795 coming from out of school youth. Skills to Succeed Indonesia has been implemented in three locations; previously in Lampung province, West Java province and East Java as the new province in global grant 5.

Current Global grant phase 5 has been started in 2017 and will be ended by 2020.

This achievement is also supported by a lot of factors both by internal and external of the projects.

Previously the project has done a midterm evaluation and some findings from our midterm performance review for GG5 project was

There is a mismatch between youth’s experience in school and the workforce

S2S approach has been acknowledge by youth to be able to answer youth needs in working preparation

Youth want S2S to be earlier in vocational school and have “less theory, more practice”


The result of the midterm has contributed some evidence that the S2S approach are feasible to be adopted to be a part of school’s activity in employability activities.

Meanwhile there will be some external factors that might have impact to the result of this evaluation project activity

Drastic changes in economic caused by Covid19 pandemic situation will impact and might influence the bias of the evaluation.

This evaluation will only be focus in schools in west java and east java as the project partners for the in-school youth students
