Voices Unite Overview
A Megaphone For South Africa’s Youth
In response to the shift in awareness of South Africa’s youth and the need for our future leaders to become more empowered in decision-making for a better tomorrow, IOA is proud to introduce plans for the ‘Voices Unite’ initiative – a large-scale national research study focusing on South African tertiary students.
will be a ground-breaking digital research platform that will house South Africa’s largest youth-focused research study.
aims to unify the voices of youth in the country to inform real change and empower tomorrow’s leaders.
is a multi-organisational undertaking that aims to reach South Africa’s +1 million tertiary students and survey more than 30,000 to inform real change and youth empowerment.
will explore in detail the state of tertiary education, job readiness, youth unemployment and student views on a range of industries, such as financial services, healthcare, technology and transportation.
It is our belief that a platform to unify and amplify the voices of the country’s youth – their views, ideas and dynamism – can inform true change in South Africa. In order to make this vision a reality, though, there is a need for collaboration and buy-in from relevant private and public sector stakeholders, as well as (most importantly) from the students themselves.
