Abstract: In a growing population like that of Ghana youth placement in education and/or work is very critical. Studies have revealed that youth participation in education and skills training in Ghana is inadequate, hence their vulnerability in terms of employment. In view of these situations the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector which has the potential to generate job opportunities for the youth needs to be promoted. The regulatory body in the sector has to be strengthened and given the necessary independence to provide an enabling environment for private sector participation for the sector to develop and create the much needed jobs for the youth.
