An overview of an South African approach for the advancement of entrepreneurship in-school. This critical initiative works to enable young people to become creators of jobs rather than job seekers. Youth unemployment represents a serious challenge to society and this nonprofit initiative that started in 1992 is now moving to scale. Core to this approach is effective collaboration amongst a broad range of stakeholders. The pilot of the Youth Enterprise Society (YES) clubs between 1994 and 1996 proved tremendously effective for its engagement of young people within entrepreneurship. Subsequent developments of "Simama Ranta" as well as the in-classroom syllabi component - resulted for the three components of YES clubs, Simama Ranta and Syllabi to form this approach to entrepreneurship education. It is with our own gratitude, as well as with the gratitude from thousands of learners as well as teachers, that we share this presentation with you. However, a lot of work still needs to be done to move beyond the 300 schools serviced - with the target of around 7,000 schools. Please join us and make it happen?! Our youth deserve to be enabled to build a life full of hope, courage, opportunity and to be full participants within the South African economy. It has been proven that one of the best ways to get people out of poverty is through entrepreneurship. We welcome your engagement whether it is through questions, suggestions, linkages, support or in any other manner that you choose engage.
