Jobs accelerator urges SA companies to give youth a foot in the door

Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator has encouraged South African businesses to help fight the crisis of youth unemployment.

Managing Director, Maryana Iskander explains that Harambee connects employers with youth who have been locked out of the formal economy.

Harambee is there to create the network between the employers and the young people.

During the launch of the EOH & 702 Youth Job Creation Challenge, Iskander has urged potential employers to seek out their services and help curb unemployment.

She says youth are often excluded from employment opportunities, not because they lack talent or potential but, because they have no market access and work experience.

In the five years that Harambee has operated, it has placed over 30 000 unemployed youth from across South Africa.
