Unilever LevelUP is a youth employability initiative that was launched in 2016 in a bid to tackle the growing youth unemployment in South Africa. With about 60% of the country’s youth being unemployed, Unilever South Africa aims to empower young people to level up their skills and become more employable. LevelUP has committed to equipping 1.5 million young South Africans with the skills to prepare them for the future of work in the next 5 years.
The LevelUP website is just one of the amazing initiatives to help young people on their journey to becoming employable. From learning the basics of personal branding to boosting digital skills, and even being able to take purposeful action through volunteering and becoming an active member of society, the experiences on the website are designed to help young people land their dream job.
