Walking the Talk in Youth Month

Walking the Talk in Youth Month

On June 16 1976, thousands of youth in Soweto took to the streets to march against the apartheid government in response to the introduction of Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in local schools. In the following days, the uprising spread throughout the country.

45 years later, the youth of South Africa is faced with different challenges. One of the biggest challenge faced by the youth in 2021 is unemployment. Recently Statistics South Africa reported that young people are still struggling in the South African labour market. The official unemployment rate was 32,6%. This rate was 46,3% among young people aged 15 – 34 years.

On this youth day, 702 is shining the spotlight on the struggles and successes of the youth day. From politics, identity, employment to lifestyle trends.
