How to Apply

The Department has introduced an alternative avenue for applicants to submit their applications.

SA Youth has added another web-based/electronic application form that is not linked to, nor dependent on the SA Youth mobi-site in terms of connectivity or stability. 

  1.    Visit https://sayouth.me/DBEin order to access the form 
  2.    The link will take applicants to the homepage where they will be required to select the province in which they are in.
  3.    Fill in the required fields with your personal particulars and ensure that all information is correct, particularly your contact number.
  4.    Search the name of the school closest to you or click the drop down menu to select the school. Only schools in the province in which you are located, will appear on the list.
  5.    Double check that all information is correct and click submit. If you have applied, there is no need to submit an application.

We would like to notify the public that the web-based/ electronic application form is an alternative application method; however, it is not zero rated and will require a small amount of data (3MB) to complete. The mobi-site (sayouth.mobi) is still available for submission of applications.
