Why say YES
Without experience, youth cannot get a job. Without a job, youth can’t get experience.
The YES 12 month quality work experience gives unemployed youth a dignified first chance at work which equips them with a toolkit to be a beacon of hope for their families, households and communities.
YES recognises the critical role the youth play in shaping our economy and our country. Youth unemployment is a problem that cannot be ignored as six million young people are shut out of the economy. This is why YES seeks out ground breaking ways, through innovation, collaboration and technological best practice to create one million jobs for South Africa’s youth. We are driven by business and supported by Government and Labour. The only way to reduce inequality is to get us all into work, to build incomes and to invest inclusively.
Now is the time to #SayYES to creating new jobs for youth across all sectors, industries and companies in South Africa.
YES Youth jobs mean more tax payers.
YES Youth jobs mean lower crime rates.
YES Youth jobs mean less social grant takers and more economic givers.
YES Youth jobs mean less substance abuse and depression.
