Congratulations to the Youth Development Programme’s final graduates of 2021, who graduated from the Siyazenzela course on Monday 13 December in partnership with The GEM Project.Siyazenzela (meaning “We are doing it for ourselves”) training courses are run as a short term project with facilitation on the following focus areas:
- Emotional & Social Wellness;
- Occupational & Financial Wellness;
- Physical & Environmental Wellness.
The courses are aimed at previously disadvantaged youth between the ages of 18 and 28. Youth participating in the Siyazenzela project gain job preparedness skills whilst also developing personal insight and understanding of themselves.
Wilderness Foundation Africa would like to extend our thanks to Joron Charitable Trust for funding the course, and a special thank you to the Youth Development Programme team for their tireless dedication to changing the lives of the students and for their unwavering enthusiasm.
