Youth can only participate in a full YES programme once.
If they have already completed the full 12 month quality work experience then they will not
be eligible to participate again. If however the youth participates for less than 8 months
and has not completed the programme, then they may be afforded an equal opportunity.
It is the responsibility of the contracting company to confirm that youth have not
participated in the programme before contracting with them. Failure to do so will result in
the youth not being eligible and the company may not qualify for the B-BBEE level-up
It is not possible to load youth onto our portal if they have already participated in a YES
programme and this will result in delays and complications if contracts are signed prior to
confirming this information.
YES cannot take responsibility for youth misrepresenting this information.
