Southern Africa Youth Project is dedicated to providing Digital Technology Skills for unemployed Youth.
Southern Africa Youth Project has conducted a baseline study or research to find out what are the challenges or what is blocking the youth from not finding employment.
From the study conducted we have noticed that those who have just completed high school and university find it difficult for them to stay in employment. This is because they do not have the skills to operate in the business or government environment.
What is Digital Technology Skills?
What challenges are out there?
Southern Africa Youth Project has found out that there are millions of youth who have failed interviews because they could not present themselves practically at work. When they give them an interview they require them to also show what are they going to do in the first month.
Southern Africa Youth Project recruited much youth and sent them to employers with a hope that employers will hire them.
To our surprise 2 months later after we have placed them they are back to Southern Africa Youth Project looking for another job.
Some employers would dismiss them without telling them the reason for such dismissal.
What did we do?
We established the Digital Technology Skills programs which bridge the gap for employers to hire the youth with basic skills. So that employers do not have to waste 6 months trying to train our youth. They can now train them in 3 days and the youth can start being productive.
For how long do we run them?
They are run between 5 days and 12 months.
Who qualifies for them?
