Enhancing aNd EmpoweRinG Youth Program (ENERGY-Program)

Introduction

Young people are a major resource for development, able to act as key agents for social change, economic development and technological innovation. According to the 2010 population census, there are approximately 62.3 million youth in Indonesia aged 16-30 years.1 This number represents over a quarter (26.2%) of Indonesia’s total population. While young people represent the future of the country, their participation in development is still less than ideal, due primarily to the poor quality of education, training and health services. Weak infrastructure coupled with experiences of inequality and exclusion, especially for girls, further increases the challenges young people face as they strive to participate more holistically in the development process.

PT. Caterpillar has been implementing CSR activities in their work area: Cilengsi & Batam. In Cilengsi, CSR activities have focused mainly on the provision of sanitation services, infrastructure development and the funding of environmental campaigns. PT. Caterpillar has also supported vocational schools through the provision of welding equipment and internships.
