Chemetrix Backs Yes 4 Youth

SA Youth is supported by the Presidency, YES, National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) and Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator as part of the Presidential Youth Employment Intervention.

The initiative is explained best by the pledge that we are signatories to.

“Through my company’s participation in the YES initiative, I hereby register my organisation with the Youth Employment Service (RF) NPC (registration number 2017/267641/08). I agree with the CEO pledge, acknowledging the critical role that youth play in shaping our economy and our country. I acknowledge that my participation in the programme is giving youth their first chance at a work opportunity and I undertake, as far as possible, to ensure youth are nurtured and encouraged in their placement.

Together with my organisation I am committed to being a co-creator in a future that works for all South Africans, with an understanding that we are subscribing to the values and philosophy of YES. This is based on humanitarian development and socio-economic principles, in the building of a pathway to guide and empower young unemployed South Africans into economic participation. Given the scale and implications of South Africa’s youth unemployment situation, the country and YES must succeed together.”

Chemetrix believes that, through our participation in this program, we are doing our bit however small it may be, to be better corporate citizens. Through this program Chemetrix has an opportunity to not only provide job opportunities, but also provide much needed skills to equip our youth for the future.
