The 702 YES Campaign

Say "YES" to changing young lives

Since the launch of the Youth Employment Service, 25 000 jobs have been created and R773 million has been injected into the economy. But behind the stats, real lives have been changed.

702 and YES want to introduce you to more youths who have joined the workforce because Business SA said “yes”. Listen to Breakfast with Bongani Bingwa and the Afternoon Drive with Joanne Joseph every day to hear their stories.

To find out how your business – big or small – can join the movement, visit www.yes4youth.co.za.
