What exactly does Youth Capital do?

Youth Capital is an advocacy campaign, created to address the lack of youth voices and experiences informing decisions to tackle the youth unemployment crisis. Our first task was to bridge young South Africans’ experiences of youth unemployment with research and the existing interventions and policies. The result is the Action Plan, a strategy that details 10 critical points where young people need support on their journey from education to economic productivity. Key to our work is ensuring that young South Africans shape conversations on the the systemic challenges laid out in the Action Plan and the relevant solutions to those challenges. We then build influence by partnering with organisations that work in the public and private sector that want to tackle youth unemployment holistically, and drive lobbying activities with the relevant decision-makers.
