Enhancing Employability, Empowering Township Youth

Limited by a lack of exposure to the world of work, young adults from township communities are thwarted in their efforts to engage in meaningful work. We focus on developing the hard & soft skills to overcome these lacks and provide access to work experience & job placement for positive futures.

    Need

    Youth unemployment rates in South Africa average ~51% and pose a significant risk to prosperity & stability in both the short and long-term. Sadly even educated youth are largely unemployable, lacking practical experience & professional skills. “There is no more important group than young people whose social and economic distance from the mainstream means they cannot participate fully as citizens... By developing their ability, we can build ... strong leaders grounded in local realities”

    Solution

    The YSDP is designed to address the high rate of youth unemployment, by bridging the gap between job seekers’ current employment skills and the skill-sets necessary for available job opportunities. We do this by:
    - Providing relevant job training & education opportunities
    - Delivering social & health services to the youth
    - Developing partnerships with public and private sector organisations
    - Maintaining a national jobs database & Supporting youth in job placement
