Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator
Do you know any youth or are you currently a youth between the ages of 18 and 34 who have a matric certificate and are unemployed?
Our assessments and training help you get and keep a real job at a real company.
We help young people with a matric or equivalent qualification who have been looking for a permanent full-time job, but haven’t been able to find one.
We also help young people who have a university degree or other tertiary qualifications but haven’t been able to find a job.
Most people find their jobs through a social network – school or university, friends, family or previous work experience.
For people who don’t have these social networks, networks that link to jobs, finding a job is difficult.
Harambee works to create this kind of social network for young work-seekers.
Research by the Development Bank of South Africa shows that a young South African who can get and keep a first job for at least 12 months has an 85% chance of being employed for the rest of their lives.
Harambee is calling upon all unemployed young people!!!!

• 18 to 34 years (opportunities available for those over 29 are limited)
