Youth unemployment statistics in the 2020 Labour Force Survey shows that around 8,6 million people aged 15 to 34 years are not in education and are not employed. June is Youth Month in South Africa and the Government is encouraging the entire country to participate in Youth Month by recognising the present and future role of the youth in shaping the socio-economic landscape of the country.
