How YES is changing lives
The Youth Employment Service (YES) has already created 18,500 new opportunities for youth to work.
The initiative in collaboration with government, business and labour gives youth a year-long experience in the workplace to improve their future prospects.
YES beneficiary Zanele Mboyi shares how this has personally benefited her.
She explains how one of the challenges surrounding youth unemployment is the need for experience.
