GOLD Peer Education

Empowering Business and Government

Being an NGO, gold Youth has designed its services to ensure that it enhances the implementation of selected priority development objectives of local, provincial and national government. These involve tackling issues of youth development, youth unemployment, youth risk behaviour and HIV, education and health. gold Youth has working collaborations with government at various levels with the aim of together being better able to serve communities in a systemic way. 

For the Business sector, gold Youth has structured itself to provide companies with channels to ‘give back’ while simultaneously in South Africa fulfilling all their BBBEE requirements through their support of and collaboration with gold at a site, provincial or nationwide level. In addition gold Youth is intentionally seeking to partner with like-minded corporations who can leverage the human capital of gold Youth programmes on the ground by gaining access to extraordinary entry level youth leaders developed by gold Youth for the workforce at this critical time in our history. gold Enterprises works closely with gold Youth to better facilitate the connection of gold Grads to post school opportunities (further education; job placements and entrepreneurial initiatives)..

“Conversations with gold” is a regular space created by gold’s Leadership team to engage corporates on a common vision for a better future through sharing our different  learnings and skills in a way that begins to break the divides that hold us back from real partnerships for development and addressing the youth unemployment crisis.
