Kgabele Memela says because of the initiative he received an internship at Unlockd.

With spiking unemployment in South Africa especially among youth, Youth Employment Service (YES) is making a difference.

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 give youth a year-long experience in the workplace to improve their future prospects.

YES beneficiary Kgabele Memela says his YES experience started last year October when he applied for an internship at Unlockd in Johannesburg.
