Description

IkamvaYouth's mission is to provide disadvantaged secondary school learners with the necessary skills and information, to enable them to realise their potential and post-school dreams, by accessing higher education, job-based training and employment and thus tackling some of South Africa’s biggest problems: the low skills base, unemployment, lack of black professionals, brain drain, poverty and youth turning to crime. To support this mission, volunteer tutors assist learners after school in improving their performance in all subjects, more so in Mathematics, Physical Science, and Languages, and mentors assist learner in accessing post school opportunities upon matriculating.
