Also registered with TEVETA TVA166, as a training centre also known as Chawama Skills Training Centre the organisation is also affiliated to NYDC National Youth Development Council Zambia.

CYPRO's activities are as follows:

  • Carpentry and Joinery - this activity was started as a training programme as years went by it was discuvered that most Youths have not taken interest in the course hence the course was turned into a business venture that allows the project to generate revenues that are helping to fund the operations of the organisation
  • Tailoring - also was one of the first skills for the youths mainly young women have taken interest in the course and it has continued as the best at CYPRO as a lot of youths especially young women.
  • Welding- was at a later stage added but as at today not as a course but as a joint revenue generating activity which works jopintly with carpentry.
  • Power Electrical was at a later stage added at the same time with bullet number 3 above
  • Automotive Mechanics was at a later stage added on demand and is still runing as on of the courses that still receive enrollement
