​Welcome to the Youth Economic Participation (YEP) programmes of the Department of Public Enterprises.

The programmes outline the youth development opportunities at the Department and within the State Owned Companies including Eskom, South African Express Airways, Transnet, Denel, Alexkor and Safcol. These programmes are being made available to you to make it possible for you to acquire the skills you need to succeed in a career in the Energy and Broadband, Transport and Manufacturing sectors.

Minister Gigaba launched the YEP which signifies a major shift by the Department to put youth development high on its agenda for the next three years.

The YEP aims to coordinate the efforts of State Owned Companies (SOC) under the DPE, such as Eskom, Transnet, Alexkor, South African Express, the South African Forestry Company and Denel, towards maximising their inputs towards youth economic empowerment, focusing on:

  • Job-creation
  • Skills development
  • Entrepreneurship development
  • Corporate Social Investment (CSI) and related initiatives
