about youth connekt zimbabwe

Youth Connekt Zim focuses on 3 main pillars: Entrepreneurship Development; Skills Development; and Networking and Dialogue. Following the successful pilot in 2019, the plan is to roll out Youth Connekt Zimbabwe into 2020 and beyond.

let's take action

the future is now

Taking an evidence-based and demand-driven approach, the development of Youth Connekt Zimbabwe is informed by youth needs as articulated by the youth themselves at the 2019 Youth Indaba. Needs include (but are not limited to): access to funds (ensuring that women have equal access); business incubation; access to markets; skills development; apprenticeships and work experience; bridging the digital divide; equal opportunities for women in the arts; information and networking; and the need to reach rural youth with youth-centred interventions.

Entreprenuership Development

Create 10 million jobs by 2020 in sustainable job environments in emerging industries.

Network and Dialogue

Identify, nurture and grow 1 million leaders that provide solutions, participate in advocacy, and become role models in their communities.

Skill Development
