The Western Cape Department
of Social Development partnered with an NGO to launch a programme called Grow
The programme aims to
empower to the youth between the ages of 18 to 25 years-old.
MEC Albert Fritz says this
programme will help the youth with skills.
Fritz said that young people
who seek and take advantage of opportunities, and use their talents, are
critical for the future prosperity of the province. The
department will continue to adopt a whole-of-society approach to youth
empowerment programmes, which will include our continued partnering with NGOs
and the private sector to deliver services and opportunities to young people.
“GROW Leadership graduates have the opportunity to
be a significant part of this partnership driven delivery. The steps they take
in the future, whether it’s starting a business, finding a job or internship
opportunity, will contribute to expanding the economy of the Western Cape” added Fritz.
