Youth & Schools

Project Leader: Henry Grobler hgrobler@businesspartners.co.za

A defining factor which contributed to the decision by the Executive Committee to undertake this specific project, is the high rate of unemployment in South Africa which is prevalent among the young people of our country. After consulting with relevant parties within the education sector, it was decided that the place to begin this endeavour, in order to minimise and eventually combat the challenge of unemployment, would be to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit from a young age. The ideal place to start this project would be within the schools. Our task in this case is to support and possibly enhance the existing school curriculum. The intention is not to burden educators or learners with additional work BUT to enhance the existing format.
