Youth looking for employment can now access learning and work opportunities on government’s newly launched portal, SAYouth.
The SAYouth initiative is part of Cyril Ramaphosa’s Presidential Youth Employment Intervention Project. It is supported by the Harambee Youth Accelerator Programme, the labour and education departments, the National Youth Development Agency as well as the Development bank of South Africa.
The Presidential Youth Employment Intervention project, which was set up earlier in the year, is one of the government’s mechanisms to tackle and set out priority actions to address youth unemployment. It aims to create work opportunities for more than 800,000 South Africans.
According to the website, SAYouth is a 100% free opportunity for young unemployed South Africans to connect to work through a range of services and work readiness training opportunities.
Applicants can register on sayouth.datafree.co for different learning and volunteering opportunities and can apply for learnerships or apprenticeships and full time or part time jobs.
