It is common knowledge that the prevalence of social vices among the youths is largely attributed to the nation's unstable economy which has carried in its train the intracable problem of unemployment.

Over the years, especially since the era of national economic crunch in the Nigeria, Emmanuel Baptist Church, Sabo-Oke, Ilorin, has been noticeably pondering over what could be done to bail out her members, particularly the Youths who happen to be the worst victims.

Recently, the youth organisation of the church came out with a proposal aimed at alleviating the scorch of joblessness and submitted same to the Church Executive committee for consideration and necessary attention.

Consequently, the Church, having affirmed the desirability of the scheme as contained in the presented proposal, set up a seven (7) member Committee. After careful consideration of the report the Church board approved to set up in the Church, Youth Empowerment Scheme.
