Following the address by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 15 March 2020 regarding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the eThekwini Youth Employability Indaba & KZN Career Expo 2020 that is scheduled to take place on the 21st- 23rd May 2020 will be postponed until further notice.
As the Organisers of the largest Youth gathering in South Africa we will be heeding the call made by the President of South Africa and the Minister of Health to comply with the regulations imposed to reduce the spread of the virus in South Africa. We would like to encourage our Stakeholders and Exhibitors to adhere to these regulations and work with the Department of Health to ensure minimal exposure.
We would like to request that our Exhibitors and Stakeholders remain patient with us as we navigate our way through this pandemic and we will inform you on the new dates for the eThekwini Youth Employability Indaba & KZN Career Expo 2020.
Strategically themed “Repositioning Youth for Inclusive Growth”, the 3 day Expo will focus on 4 pillars: Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), Inclusive Growth, Trade and People with Disabilities. These four pillars will be the key areas of discussion on how to position the KwaZulu-Natal youth to equip themselves with required skills to meet the new opportunities.
In 2018, the inaugural eThekwini Youth Employability Indaba & KZN Career Expo showcased 120 exhibitors, inspired over 30 000 amazing high school learners and youth, facilitated a robust sector specific 2 day conference programme and hosted parent engagement session at the weekend. This year, the aim of the programme is to provide an inclusive platform to engage and disseminate information on the new opportunities in the key focus areas.
