Youth unemployment is a huge problem in Africa that demands a bold solution. Young Africa aims to tackle this problem by training as many young people as possible.
Young Africa is a confederation of independently and locally registered affiliated NGOs. Each affiliate runs training centres, youth (self-) employment programmes and community activities. Currently, there are nine YA training centres in five countries in Southern Africa.
Young Africa International is the founder of the confederation. It safeguards the vision, supports the work of the affiliates and seeks to expand their reach. YA works with two innovations in skills training: the franchise model and the integral approach to youth development.
