SA Youth was officially launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Youth Day June 16, 2021, as part of the Presidential Youth Employment Intervention (PYEI)* and serves to aggregate opportunities and link unemployed young people to jobs and work experiences.

SA Youth is a national pathway management network, an initiative that brings together eight government departments led by the Department of Employment and Labour, in a strong partnership with Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator and other organizations, to form a network that will support young people to find pathways into the economy.
Through these partnerships, we have developed an online platform called SAYouth.mobi. Youth can create a profile, view opportunities for learning and earning, and receive support through multiple channels. SAYouth.mobi has been zero-rated by all mobile networks so that it can be accessed by young people from anywhere in the country at absolutely no cost.
This complements existing efforts to create physical spaces where young people can go to access information, opportunities and support including the NYDA centres and will include the 127 labour centres operated by the Department of Labour and Employment in every province.

What does SA Youth mean for Work-seekers?
Work-seekers can access a network to find opportunities, earn an income and to stay engaged and connected – for free! SA Youth gathers opportunities (for earning, learning, and volunteering) from many partners and makes them visible to young people through a mobi-site. The site allows them to select and apply for opportunities that are a good fit based on their profile and interest. And it costs the young person nothing—there are no fees, and the site is data-free.
