On the 25 and 26 March 2014, the Mapungubwe
Institute (MISTRA) in partnership with Harambee hosted an evidence based
learning ex-change on youth unemployment in Stellenbosch. This ex-change is
aimed at providing a podium that will not only guide, but propel practical
action and policy to effectively facilitate first time employment and create
the platform for scale and strategic impact.
MISTRA executive director, Joel Netshitenzhe, presented
in the opening session on the macrosocial implications of youth marginalization
and policies required to mitigate the scourge. In the second session, which was
facilitated by Mr.Ndletyana, MISTRA political economy researcher David Maimela delivered a presentation which focused on youth attitudes,
practices and experiences around work seeking and towards work.
