Youth Job Creation

The EOH Youth Job Creation Initiative has made noticeable strides since its inception in 2012. Initiated by founder and former CEO, Asher Bohbot, the initiative is deeply entrenched in our business and has made a big impact in how we engage with our partners and customers.

Of the individuals taken through the program, 83% have been placed in full-time employment, within the Group and our partner networks.

The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) has also endorsed the initiative in order to smooth young people’s transition from education and training into the labour market.

Working together with our customers, business partners, and government, we want to help by creating internships for 20,000 graduates and learnerships for 30,000 Matriculants.
