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

Maluleka is part of a group of young people who have benefitted from the YES initiative which has created 18,500 new opportunities for the youth.

The initiative, in collaboration with government, business and labour give youth a year-long experience in the workplace to improve their future prospects.

Maluleka joins Bongani Bingwa to chat about how YES has positively impacted his life.

As part of the YES programme, I am able to work as a maintenance electrician for a very big company.
