What does it cost to join SA Youth or to access work opportunities?

SA Youth is 100% free for everyone – the site is zero-rated and requires no data. Please note that no SA Youth staff members or their partners will ask you for money at any point. Please always be vigilant for any possible scams.

Can the opportunity close before the closing date? I have tried to apply to a job but it says it has reached the maximum amount of applications?

All opportunities have a closing date displayed, however, in some instances the employer has indicated the maximum number of applicants they want to receive – if this happens before the closing date is reached, the system will tell you and you will be unable to apply. This is why it is so important to log in every day to apply for available opportunities.

How will I know if my application was received?

Once you apply, the mobi-site will display a message saying that your application has been received. This is your confirmation, you can also view opportunities you have applied for under APPLICATIONS. Plus, if you try to apply again it will tell you that you have already applied.

However, if the opportunity is not with a registered SA Youth partner you will have to follow the link and leave the mobi-site to apply. You can then communicate directly with the opportunity holder.

The mobi-site says that I am already registered, but I have never registered?

If you have previously registered on or on you will automatically be registered on So just log in using those details.

If you cannot remember your password please select the option “Forgot password” and if you are using the phone number or email address that you originally registered with, you will receive a link via SMS or email to reset your password. However, if you have changed your phone number you will need to call 0800 727272 for help resetting your password.

Once we have created these experiences, we will then begin to make placements. If you have registered, we will be in touch with you.
