We Are YouthBuild SA

YouthBuild South Africa focuses on youth aged 17 - 29 who are out of school, out of work, and are either underprivileged or living in poverty. We are committed to empowering young people by helping them face and overcome the systemic issues that limit their opportunities.

At YouthBuild South Africa, we help students reclaim their education, gain job skills, and become leaders in their communities. Our programs benefit young people from urban, tribal, and rural communities, empowering the young people so that they can improve their communities in turn.

Our Impact

Our primary concern is how can we provide training, resources and support to help develop our young people. We also recognize that young people are also part of their families, so we are very focused on how we can create positive outcomes for young people and their families.

We care deeply about communities. Our programmes are rooted in communities where the young people come from. We do our outmost best to forge partnerships with parents, families and community leaders. We want to help improve the quality of life in local communities.

We focus on systems that impact our young people. That is, everything from workforce development systems, criminal justice systems, education systems, and how we can make these systems more responsive to the needs of under privileged young people.
