YearBeyond targets 18-25-year-old youth not in employment or education growing in disadvantaged communities. The programme provides youth with a meaningful 10-12 month work experience opportunity, while also engaging in a journey of self-discovery. The aim of the programme is to provide a bridge into the world of work and study. The project is a partnership between the Community Chest of the Western Cape, the Western Cape Government and Michael and Susan Dell Foundation. The programme, which has been running since 2015, is in an expansion phase with over 1 000 youth per annum on the programme and plans to increase to 5 000 youth per annum in the next three years.
