Our partners range from large corporates through to small family-run businesses. The one thing they have in common is a commitment to taking ethical responsibility for the world we want to live in. That is they care about social change in South Africa, and they realize the tremendous role of business in creating effective change.
Engagement with SAYes business partners occurs in the context of mentorship. This ensures that mentees are motivated to pursue a particular opportunity and that they are held accountable to the commitment they make. SAYes mentors work with their mentees to identify areas of interest and strength, and to set appropriate goals in relation to these. They then approach SAYes to arrange access to a suitable business partner.
SAYes mentees vary in terms of their current skills level. Some SAYes mentees are studying at postgraduate level at tertiary institutions while others have learning disabilities and/or are developmentally delayed. We also work with a wide age range (14 and 25 years), so different opportunities are appropriate depending on the age of the mentee. SAYes programme support specialists work with the mentor and partner to ensure the right fit.
