Tackling unemployment by empowering our youth
South Africa’s mammoth unemployment challenge that faces mostly young people needs innovative and sustainable thinking to make a visible difference. We’ve empowered our Corporate Social Investment team through the Momentum Metropolitan Foundation to concentrate on finding workable and sustainable solutions to place young people into gainful jobs. Our broad-based, holistic approach is delivering successful and far-reaching results.
We care about youth unemployment that’s why we prioritise projects and partners that support their journey to employment. This means we focus on programmes from partners where there's a clear, intentional flow from recruitment, technical training, psychosocial support and self-development to job placement, entrepreneurship, and career or business mentoring and support.
