A Microsoft Corp. Initiative that provides a complete ecosystem to support Employability/Entrepreneurship for Youth Workforce Development. 

Microsoft hired ambassadors across Pakistan to it launch the first of its kind youth employability portal in Pakistan ( Ambassadors were required to work closely with Microsoft Pakistan to create awareness about the portal and conduct training workshops around the themes of entrepreneurship, women led business, resume building, Job search, scholarships and online courses.
