Does your business qualify to participate in the YES programme?



The YES4Youth programme is a 12-month work experience programme for unemployed youth. Entities who participate in the YES4Youth programme have the opportunity to benefit, should they reach the required targets and meet the minimum requirements.


The YES initiative allows for all business to participate in the programme. However, to qualify for BBBEE benefit purposes, there are certain requirements to be met before becoming eligible for these benefits. These requirements are separated as based on turnover.

Generic entities need to meet the sub-minimum requirements of the priority elements of the rating scorecard. These elements are:
