This strategy presents challenges and opportunities for youth as identified by a cross-section of stakeholders, including professional bodies, government departments, civil society, NGOs and youth formations. A lot of work also involved drawing information from various domestic and international instruments, public and research reports. The strategy provides an insight of experiences of youth, both systemic and structural. The common denominator is that youth are at the bottom scale of economic activities; majority are unemployed and that business opportunities are not within easy reach. Furthermore, they lack access to quality education and useful skills development.

While the report IYDS does not give in details the historical detail of youth development in South Africa, it does however acknowledge context within which the idea of an integrated approach to youth development was muted. It reflects some of the implications and impact of the country’s political history and its legacy on the unfolding economic transitions.
