20/07/2015: Vulindlel’ eJozi goes to communities
20 July 2015
Vulindlel’ eJozi Regional Road Shows, which are designed to create awareness about the youth empowerment programme, are set to begin in Coronationville on Monday, July 20, 2015.

This is after the initiative by the City of Johannesburg, in partnership with Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator, was launched on June 1st this year by the Joburg Executive Mayor, Parks Tau, to mark the 39th Commemoration of Youth Month.

Mayor Tau said: “The road shows are a follow up on the promise I made in the State of the City Address in May that the city will soon be rolling out the youth programme designed to break down barriers to various opportunities for the youth.”

“We are currently dealing with an estimated 1 million young people in Johannesburg, who are not economically active. Vulindlel’ eJozi is an initiative designed to call the youth to action and further help them realise their aspirations of growth,” he said.

Mayor Tau said in developing Vulindlel’eJozi, the city together with its partner, Harambee, had combined data sources and analytics to understand what the barriers were to young people making their way in the world.

“The picture that emerged was complex, but it allows a way forward to be mapped and this is why Vulindlel’ eJozi today offers an opportunity for young people across the city to rise above their limiting circumstances,” Mayor Tau said.

The innovative youth skills empowerment initiative is expected to break down barriers to opportunities for 200 000 youth aged between 18 and 34 – with at least a Grade 10 and less than a year of work experience. This is their chance to put their hands up to access entry-level job training and placement, further education and entrepreneurial skills development opportunities.

Young people can visit the Vulindlel’ eJozi mobi site on www.vulindlelejozi.mobi to register for the programme. Otherwise, they can also look out for a road show in their respective regions at selected venues between 08:30 and 11:30. Entry at the venues is free.
