Educate the youth in 2024

Be The Salt and Light for Change by sponsoring the skills and professional development, mentorship, volunteer experiences, and career readiness of a young person for twelve (12) months


of unemployed people in South Africa have never held a job before. Furthermore, three-quarters of all unemployed persons are younger than 35 years (Baker, 2007)*.

Our Mission

Our mission is to address this critical challenge through our Comprehensive Job Readiness Program tailored to the unique circumstances of South Africa.

The program focuses on skills development, mentorship, and practical experience to bridge the skills, education, and experience gap.

The 12-month program includes eight (8) non-accredited and four (4) accredited self-development modules, volunteer placement opportunities to gain industry-relevant skills, and mentorship from seasoned professionals.

Our aim is to equip career-ready individuals that have the skills, education, and experience needed to compete in the current job market.
