Youth Development Programme

Our Youth development programme provides a wide range of services, opportunities and support to young people as well as their families. Our programme builds on the strengths of young people through skills development, leadership training, mentoring and transitioning youth through different life and problem stages.

The programme is done on a holistic level utilising social inclusion of most youth with a specific focus on NEET’s Youth (Not in Education, Employment and or Training).
