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. ‚ÄúThere 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‚Äù
The YSDP is designed to address the high rate of youth unemployment, by bridging the gap between job seekers‚Äô 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
