ABSTRACT

The various government interventionist programmes aimed at economically empowering the youths have failed woefully to achieve set targets. Youth unemployment in the country therefore, has become more pervasive as it increases by the day. This study was conducted to assess the impact made by SURE-P in economically empowering Nigerian youth and reducing anti-social activities among them, with particular reference to Benue State. Survey method was used in the inquiry and data obtained was analyzed using simple percentage technique. The result proved that youth unemployment continues in alarming proportions. This finding justified the research assumptions and the Political Economy Approach adopted as research frameworks. Many systemic challenges were identified as factors hampering the successful implementation of youth empowerment programmes in Nigeria, prominent among which are limited opportunities, politicization and lack of awareness. The study therefore, recommends that future programmes should be designed in consultation with youth and opportunities should be distributed based on merit rather than politics.

Key Words: Youth Unemployment, Empowerment, Youth Empowerment, Empowerment Programmes, SURE-P.
