Go for Gold

Education to Employment

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.

Our partners are made up of people who understand that the journey from school to employment is a long one and that developing skilled, employable candidates requires patience and investment.
