Young people represent both current and future employees, investors, and consumers, creating an important opportunity for business. Ultimately, enterprises need skilled human capital to grow and thrive, and the supply of youth talent is critical for business to compete and grow in a competitive and rapidly changing environment. Today’s youth is well-educated and represents the labour force of tomorrow. Working to curb youth unemployment and create opportunities for young people can help business to address its current and future skills needs.
Today’s young people are the most educated generation ever. Nevertheless, they encounter difficulties in entering and remaining in the labour market. Therefore G-CITI has developed a range of employment initiatives to support youth in obtaining learnerships / internships and employment through its employment accelerator partnership model.
Based on our social impact and community expertise, we assist and support youth in finding further studies, internships and learnerships. Based on our expertise, we have discovered that youth must be academic ready and also industry. Therefore we have compiled a list of soft skills programmes to ensure youth are industry.
