Are you in the mining sector and looking to create measurable impact?
Interested in using job creation for youth as a vehicle to create thriving communities?
Looking for a solution that integrates seamlessly with your social and labour plan (SLP), as well as environmental, social and governance strategies (ESG) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
Do you need a B-BBEE boost?
Then join Marc Ashton, YES chief partnerships officer, Farai Mubaiwa and YES business development strategy director, Samantha Steyn, on 31 May. We’ll be discussing our key takeouts from the Mining Indaba conference, as well as the problem YES is helping the mining sector to solve.
Through the YES turnkey solution, your mining or mining supply company can create broad-based impact through uplifting communities. YES works with 33 vetted host partners across SA to allow companies that cannot place youth internally (for whatever reason), an affordable way to change lives.
YES host partners are NPOs or innovators working in high-impact sectors such as healthcare, education, early childcare development and conservation where youth live, meaning they can play an important part in building their own communities.
The YES host partners help capacitate local businesses, schools, clinics and NPOs with dynamic young people who are eager to learn and grow their careers. This feeds into poverty eradication and upliftment of communities and economies beyond the mines these towns surround.
This model integrates seamlessly with the Local Economic Development (LED) and Human Resource Development elements of the SLP.
