Strengthening Learnerships for Unemployed Youth
With support from JPMorgan Chase Foundation, we are promoting the development and delivery of IYF's Passport to Success® (PTS) life skills training for youth from disadvantaged backgrounds and communities in Gauteng Province, South Africa. This work contributes to the country-wide EOH Youth Job Creation Initiative and fills the need for market-responsive life skills training that EOH—along with the wider information and communications technology (ICT) industry—have identified as critical for preparing more young people for careers in the sector. In addition to PTS training, this initiative provides structured ICT workplace experience and technical training. In collaboration with Genesis Analytics, IYF will measure the impact of the PTS integration, and, with EOH, work to leverage this data to increase public and private sector investment in life skills training for unemployed youth.
