Our approach to youth empowerment

South Africa’s mammoth unemployment challenge that faces mostly young people needs innovative and sustainable thinking to make a visible difference. We’ve empowered our Corporate Social Investment team through the Momentum Metropolitan Foundation to concentrate on finding workable and sustainable solutions to place young people into gainful jobs. Our broad-based, holistic approach is delivering successful and far-reaching results.

Funding criteria

Because of the magnitude of the problem and the scope creep in trying to address it, we have put down certain parameters to ensure a focused approach. Our investment should deliver a sustainable job or income generating activity for young people. To achieve this, we prioritise partnerships and programmes who/which:

  • Support the journey to employment: recruitment to placement and career support.
  • Focus on the youth segment 16 to 25.
  • Offer accredited programmes.
  • Are innovative and invest in the sustainability of their organisation.
  • Are registered non-profits in good standing.
  • Base their responses on community engagement and research.

Our partners

We care about youth unemployment and that’s why we prioritise projects and partners that support their journey to employment. This means we focus on programmes from partners where there's a clear, intentional flow from recruitment, technical training, psychosocial support and self-development to job placement, entrepreneurship, and career or business mentoring and support.
