Youth unemployment is one of the most pressing socio-economic problems in South Africa today, with high rates of unemployment linked to poverty, crime, social degradation and loss of morale. Our young people represent a massive 64 percent of overall unemployment.
Young South Africans are desperate for education and work-related opportunities, but struggle to locate this vital information. If they do, it’s often irrelevant, out of date or out of financial reach.
