Solving youth unemployment through partnerships.
WHAT WE DO
Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator is a not-for-profit social enterprise building African solutions for the global challenge of youth unemployment. We work in South Africa with many partners who are committed to results that can work at scale – including government, the private sector, civil society, and over 1 million youth.
We are committed to changing the system by removing the barriers that keep millions of young Africans locked out of opportunity. Our vision is of a growing economy and a society that works, powered by the potential of young people.
