LINKUP our new Youth Internship Programme
Linkup is a Supported Internship Youth programme designed to tackle the extreme unemployment amongst our disadvantaged youth in Fairyland and the Drakenstein District. Designed for the ages between 16-20, Linkup provides the necessary practical, soft skills, work experience and references in order to achieve future employment all under the carefully designed support from a local school or community centre.
We ran our first internship in March 2018 with help of our business partners; Woolworths, Cascade Manor and Buffet Olives. We have had 7 successful internships and amazing feedback we are aiming to grow the project to 15 students in June.
We are currently looking for some funding for smart work clothes for our students in July. If you are interested in helping or becoming a new business partner, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at (021) 872 4060.
