The challenges relating to youth unemployment are entrenched and systemic. They require solutions that have advanced through proven ideas and initiatives, and are integrated into key systems. They need to be of a sufficient size and duration that they can be scaled up in order to ensure the sustainability of the institution, the programme, and the impact.

This learning brief highlights the ways in which Harambee has evolved and the extent to which it has contributed to systems change. The innovative way it has been able to grow both the concept and the practice of pathway management within the South African context, and its ability to learn, adapt and scale, has allowed Harambee to support the Pathway Management Network as part of the Presidential Youth Employment Intervention (PYEI).
