Umsobomvu Youth Fund (UYF) was established in January 2001 by the South African government with the mandate to create a platform for skills development and job creation for the South African youth. UYF focuses on three programme areas: Information Provision, Skills Development and Transfer, as well as Youth Entrepreneurship.
Do you offer bursaries, scholarships, skills programmes, learnerships and training?
UYF is calling on all companies, organisations, foundations and government departments to forward any opportunities they may have for youth aged 18–35 to the organisation. UYF is compiling a comprehensive database of opportunities and referrals for youth to access via our portal or 121 Youth Advisory Centres countrywide.
As we come to the end of another academic year, many matriculants, graduates and unemployed youth in general will be looking once again for opportunities for 2009. The opportunities and referral database will be compiled to assist the multitude of youth who do not know where to go in their search of opportunities.
These include bursaries, scholarships, skills development programmes, learnerships, internships, recruitment opportunitites, volunteer projects and more.
Should your organisation have any opportunities for young South Africans, please forward these details to the UYF.
The South African Youth Card, which is an initiative of the Umsobomvu Youth Fund, will distribute the list to its 250,000 members.
If you want to promote your opportunity to more than two million young people, contact UYF on firstname.lastname@example.org or 08600YOUTH (96884).
