YES Initiative

What YES Does.

Over the next three years, YES – led and supported by the private sector – will incentivise businesses to employ young people, giving them a chance at a life-changing first work experience. With a unique collaboration between government, labour, civil society and the youth, this represents a benchmark in fresh, bold responses to our country’s unemployment crisis.

How YES Works.

Government have introduced a new Youth Employment B-BBEE recognition, allowing a business that meets YES targets and complies with registration criteria to move up a level on their current B-BBEE scorecard. In addition, to encourage demand-side job creation, companies employing black youth between 18 and 29 years old will qualify for the Employment Tax Incentive.

YES is applying fresh thinking to create new work opportunities; giving youth a chance to establish a future, becoming self-directed and restoring their dignity.
