The thesis examines the skill training programs implemented by the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Egypt and their implementation types. The thesis focuses on five types of skill-training programs based on a secondary data resource available on the Youth Employment Inventory (YEI) online database. Common characteristics are examined between 100 skill-training programs in Egypt. Similarities and differences between the programs in both the urban and rural places and an evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses concerning training, labor market barriers, the targeted groups, beneficiaries, types of programs, and other services provided from the programs is discussed. The study shows that there are some gaps that need to be addressed by the NGOs regarding the beneficiaries of the training, the services provided in addition to the training, and the labor market barriers or failures that these programs established to resolve.
