Summary

22% of South African youth do not have direct access to people that can help them find work or opportunities. enke: Make Your Mark works to develop youth to recognise their own value, thrive, and mobilise for meaningful change for themselves and their communities. This project will build a digital "bank" of training, opportunities and resources for our 3600+ alumni to access opportunities and social capital they need to succeed and thrive as economically active, socially responsible citizens.

Challenge

South Africa has the worst youth unemployment rate in the world and almost 6 million youth are not in education, employment or training. 22% of South African youth do not have direct access to people that can help them find work or opportunities, thus lacking information, know-how and social capital to identify and access opportunities to become economically active. They become trapped in a cycle of hopelessness. This project will make sure the 3,600+ youth in our alumni network avoid this.

Solution

This project is to build an online "bank" of educational resources, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for 3600+ youth trained by enke: Make Your Mark. This will give them continuous access to opportunities and social capital they need to become economically active, socially responsible citizens. We will be taking what we are doing successfully face-to-face, to a digitally accessible, continuous education and development format that scales.

Long-Term Impact

At enke we give youth a chance to realise their value, thrive and lead the change they wish to see for themselves, their communities and the world. This project goes beyond the 3,6000 youth in our alumni network. We train about 500 youth annually, and are on track to scale that impact to double our annual reach by the end of 2020. This means that we will be making sure that 1,000s of youth have the holistic resources they need to thrive and actively contribute to the betterment of society.
