The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund has pledged to take steps to address the issue of unemployment in the state.

In a statement, LSETF said would create a network of dedicated professionals who share the organisation’s vision and are eager to achieve those objectives.

The agency stated that its programmes would involve volunteers participating in various capacities, such as conducting training sessions, providing mentorship, and coaching support, engaging in field research, and carrying out program evaluations or assessments.

LSETF added that following calls for applicants, volunteers were carefully selected through a rigorous screening and assessment, saying out of over 500 applications received, only 41 got shortlisted and were formally onboarded.

Expressing confidence in the programme, the Director of Strategy, Funding and Stakeholder Management at LSETF, Sheila Ojei, said, “The launch of the volunteer network programme signifies a significant milestone in our journey at the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund.

“Social impact thrives on collaboration, and we firmly believe that our partnership with the newly onboarded volunteers will enhance our ability to fulfil our mandate and generate remarkable change in Lagos State.”

On his part, the Lead Coach, Omu Consulting Limited, Omu Obilor, said, “As a passionate advocate for social impact initiatives, I have long admired LSETF’s approach to wealth and job creation in Lagos State. I am excited to impact and drive change alongside the Fund positively. I commend them for establishing this platform.”

According to the agency, the Volunteer Network Programme targets Lagos residents, business/career professionals with three to eight years of experience in their respective fields, and outstanding business owners who have demonstrated integrity and involvement in social impact initiatives.
