Our Skills development programme is focused on unemployed youth. Youth are in this case historically disadvantaged individuals between 18-35 years old.
We focus on skills development for youth because of the extremely high unemployment rates in township communities. Youth often don’t have access to tertiary education institutions and are sitting at home without work.
By providing relevant skills we aim to give them a better chance to get a solid job. We’ve started our skills development course in 2014 and since then have trained youth in IT – End User Computing and Fashion & Design. An interesting note to make here is that all our skills development facilitators are previous students.
