The Centre for Social Development Africa—CSD’s sister center at the University of Johannesburg—recently published the Siyakha Youth Assets Study. It examines whether the combination of a youth employability program and a financial capability intervention can have an impact on young people’s job outcomes.
We are pleased to share news from and highlight ongoing collaborations with our global partners the Centre for Social Development Asia, at the National University of Singapore, and the Centre for Social Development in Africa, at the University of Johannesburg.
