Youth Employment Program: For youths aged 15~29 graduating from schools and lacking work experience or professional skills, businesses plan job training based on their need to help youths understand the workplace and learn practical skills; meantime, businesses can understand the competency and attitude of the youths and further increase their intention to employ the youths.
