Tonga Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship Inc. (TYEE) was first established in 2014 as a registered not for profit youth organisation.
The need to establish the organisation arose from the high rate of youth unemployment in Tonga and the increasing number of school-leavers each year who were unable to secure a job. TYEE aims to help young school leavers aged 18 to 29.
Youth comprise a large proportion of Tonga’s population. However, there are not enough jobs in Tonga to cater for the growing population and not everyone who completes their education will get a job. Despite this challenge, it has been TYEE’s mission to assist youth to find employment. For young entrepreneurs who are interested in establishing their own businesses, TYEE’s goal is to empower them with relevant information and support to help get their businesses started.
