Youth Development

Youth Development is essential to helping the youth of South Africa succeed in life. There are far more prospective workers than there are jobs available for them, and many youth are not able to afford to study further and become more specialised. This is where youth development programmes come in. Offering young people work readiness programmes, opportunities to advance their education and make a difference in their communities are just some of the ways that youth development can change South Africa for the better.

In order for South Africa to grow and excel it is necessary to recognise and celebrate exceptional individuals who make a difference and lead the way in the world of work, for this reason the Rising Star Awards was created.

Youth Empowerment lies at the heart of Usher?s New Look Foundation 2012 World Leadership Conference and five local students have been selected to participate in this global event.

With the aim of developing youth entrepreneurs, Productivity SA, a public entity of the Department of Labour (DoL) has announced its joint effort to establish the Youth Group of Companies (YGC).

The NYDA has developed a month long schedule of activities aimed at promoting youth access to information and opportunities as part of its Youth Month celebrations. This year the programme will kick off with a Youth Express Train.
