Linked to the National Development Plan (Vision 2030) and Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP), the primary objectives of the NARYSEC Programme are as follows:

  • Recruiting unemployed rural youth as part of the District Development Model and other approved government programmes and initiatives, working with provinces, the private sector, municipalities and local traditional councils;
  • Building the capacity of rural youth through various skills development interventions;
  • Facilitating the transitioning of the recruited youth to participate in economic activities; and
  • Providing post-programme support to the youth who have exited the programme and linking them to economic opportunities.

The NARYSEC Programme is recruiting for 2023/2024. Intakes will be in August 2023 and October 2023.

Skills development opportunities will be provided to unemployed rural youth.
