Y-AGE is now a fully-fledged and supported Public-Private partnership initiative.
The project aims to recruit 100 000 young people in Gauteng to be trained, mentored, funded and assisted to run their own businesses.
The entrepreneurs will then return to their various businesses where they will each endeavour to employ 3 to 5 people.
With the growth of each business, the goal of creating 1 million jobs will be realised. Imagine how the lives connected to those 100 000 entrepreneurs can change.
This project can change the face of our province, and eradicate a host of social problems.
The programme is made up of ten steps. Each step is carefully considered and will be led by dedicated staff. These ten steps are the key to unlocking our big goal of a million jobs by 2012.
