“LEADERSHIP, NOT MONEY - WILL SOLVE SOUTH AFRICA’s YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM”

Tessa Doom writes:
“It is not money but leadership that will improve the prospects for success in reducing youth unemployment. To date, South Africa does not have a clear strategy for enabling youth to transition successfully from education to economic participation.

The wide range of societal efforts are happening void of an end goal and clear measures of success. Currently, programmes can approach youth employment support through employability skills, short term placements or funding without a shared understanding of what counts are a successful outcome for youth.

GUEST: TESSA DOOMS - National Planning Commissioner responsible for youth development.
