COVID-19 has increasingly

become the greatest hurdle for millions of young people worldwide.

The Regional Alliance for Youth in Sub-Saharan Africa is an expansion of the Alliance for YOUth, which was founded by Nestlé in Europe in 2014. In January 2019, at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, a Global Alliance consisting of 20 international companies was launched.
To date, 7 companies have joined the Alliance in Sub Saharan Africa:
Nestle, ABB, Adcorp group, Nielsen Africa, Publicis, Microsoft & Power FM. All4Youth SSA’s primary goal is to implement employability workshops, mentorship programmes and training initiatives that equip young people with essential workplace skills for the future of work.
COVID-19 has increasingly become the greatest hurdle for millions of young people worldwide. The pandemic within a short space of time accelerated global connectivity, gig work, automation, and artificial intelligence. CEO & Youth Connect provides insight into how young people can adapt to an agile work environment with the skills they need to access meaningful work.
We invite senior leaders from the alliance to provide insights into adapting to the agile world of work for youth covering the following areas: Senior leaders from the alliance describe the future of work for youth in their organization. The challenges and opportunities in Africa for young people if they are to thrive in an agile work environment.
