Yute Microwork

The proposed pilot YUTE Microwork Programme is a newly developed initiative that seeks to leverage partnerships with local and international NGOs to build the capacity of at-risk Jamaican young people between the ages of 16 and 29 from inner city communities across Kingston, to access, create and seize a wide array of self-employment opportunities available across the mushrooming global Microwork market. The pilot is expected to take place over a period of 6 months, April 2015 – September 2015.

Microwork is a series of small tasks that have been broken out of a larger project and assigned to an online work management platform by a company that can be completed via the Internet by any worker with computer and Internet access and the requisite skills to complete the assigned task. Microwork is a particularly promising area for digital earning opportunities by youth and women in developing countries. The microwork tasks assigned are so diverse and flexible that they cater to varying levels of skills – from basic to complex. Examples of such microwork include market research, data input, data verification, copywriting, graphic design, and even software development.
