The Nedbank YES Program is a business-led collaboration with the government to reduce unemployment by allowing the youth to develop new skills and gain meaningful workplace experience, which will improve their chances of finding long-term future employment significantly. A pivotal advantage of engaging in a YES program lies in the hands-on experience it offers.
Participants immerse themselves in authentic work environments, acquiring practical skills and knowledge directly applicable to their forthcoming careers. This hands-on exposure proves invaluable in establishing a robust foundation for professional advancement, thereby increasing the potential for securing employment in the future.
This stipend given to selected participants is designed to cover basic transportation costs and serves as practical support during their program engagement.
