Learning Forum on National Youth Service 2013
Can National Youth Service (NYS) programmes increase the employability of young people in Africa? Can the service experience strengthen them as young entrepreneurs and increase their income through livelihoods? These are just some of the questions that will be explored at a Learning Forum in Johannesburg on 25-26 November 2013.
The MasterCard Foundation, based in Canada, has partnered with Innovations in Civic Participation (ICP) and Volunteer and Service Enquiry Southern Africa (VOSESA) on a major research project about National Youth Service programmes in Sub-Saharan Africa. The findings of the study will be shared at the Learning Forum, including promising practices that can help integrate young people into the economy and provide a better return for state and private sector investment in youth service.Learn more about registration »
