MORE ABOUT US
Skills development and the education of the young black South African is the driving force behind Energy Mobility Education Trust. We inspire purpose and aim to contribute meaningfully to South Africa’s economic growth by levelling the playing fields in a country as unequal as ours, by creating real economic opportunities for young people.
THE GRASS IS GREENEST WHERE YOU WATER IT
Nurture, shape, mould and guide is at the heart of our aspiration to see every black South African child achieve the best of their potential.
The power of education lies in its ability to break the cycle of poverty. Our programmes are designed to prepare young people for the world of work and entrepreneurship. We set them up for success by engaging early in their educational journey and we continue to walk the path with them at university, providing holistic support throughout their academic journey. Finally, we pave the way for successful integration into the workplace through work-readiness workshops, practical tools and advice.
Skills development focuses on two categories: Youth Skills Development and People with Disabilities. We empower our youth through IT skills training and certification and job placements through the YES initiative. We facilitate young independence and mobility training and SETA-accredited vocational skills training for young people with disabilities so they can participate meaningfully in the economy.
