Ascent Growth Partners says YES to South African youth

Ascent Growth Partners welcome Kgaugelo Manaka and Siyabonga Tshabalala, who are joining the team as interns at our Johannesburg office.

In 2019, we joined as a corporate partner, YES, a business-led collaboration with government, labour and civil society to create one million first-time work experiences, over three years, for South Africa’s unemployed black youth. Empowered. Productive young people are given an opportunity to uplift themselves and contribute to shaping the country’s social and economic future.
