The level of education of a large percentage of South Africans youth is not favourable for gaining meaningful employment according to Statistics South Africa. In disadvantaged areas, youth unemployment is at its highest. This research paper will consider the root causes of unemployment of South African youth and the factors that contribute to it. A case study of an intervention to improve the social development of disadvantaged youth by providing them with internships will be studied. It will focus on the expectations of interns and managers of an eLearning software solution to assist with intern training. A learning management software solution, designed to provide trainees with resources to learn web development; software engineering and prepare trainees with the necessary skills for employment in the corporate environment, will be discussed.
