One of our biggest programme is the future workplace preparation which focus on improving the employability chances of graduates and give them exposure/education & training for digital careers.
The programme was started in 2015 before the rise of the #HireAGraduate movement. We realised that as much as we see the problem of graduates unemployment no one was willing to define the problem and come up with sustainable solutions to solve it for good. We then started Boomerang Hub Graduates Centre to focus on graduates connection and empowerment.

According to National Youth Policy programme (NYP 2020) graduates youth targeted interventions like ours are needed to enable young South Africans to actively participate, engage in society and the economy. While Stats SA research reveal that graduates unemployment was 33,5 % for those aged between 15-24 and 10.2% amongst those aged between 25-34 years, while the rate amongst adults aged between 35-64 was 4,7%. Implying that unemployment in South Africa is high for both youth and adults. This imply that the unemployment rate is high in youth between 15-34 meaning more than one in every three young people in labour force did not have a job in the first quarter of 2018.
