Go For Gold

Award winning education to employment initiative

Our 4 Phase program reduces youth unemployment through skills development, and provides our partners with low-risk recruitment options and BEE points.

We tackle the skills shortage in the built environment and related sectors through a collaborative approach.

In South Africa today, approximately half our young people are unemployed. At the same time, there is a serious skills shortage of technically trained professionals.

Tackling the skills shortage in the Built Environment and related sectors, while simultaneously addressing youth unemployment, requires an innovative and collaborate approach.

Go for Gold has created a transformative solution to these serious issues and is committed to expanding in order to benefit many more young people, from disadvantaged communities across South Africa. We need to collaborate to achieve this goal.
