EmpowaYouth brings opportunities closer to youth and supports their desire to improve their socio-economic conditions by driving collaboration and participation from relevant business sectors to ensure a more inclusive economy, specifically in peri-urban and rural areas.

TRANSFORMED

Creating learning and skills development, networking and job opportunities for young people, by exposing them to different industries, career guidance, entrepreneurship and investment opportunities

CONNECTED

Bringing industry, government and funding organisations to the township, to create economic opportunities and spark growth

INSPIRED

Discussing the real issues faced by youth today – not just in the context of work, but also in society; harnessing individual potential through personal mastery and practical skills

EMPOWAYOUTH WEEK

EmpowaYouth Week is an extraordinary initiative that has impacted over 50,000 youth inspiring them with knowledge, connecting them to real and relevant opportunities and transforming their lives – giving them hope and a future.

EMPOWAYOUTH WEEKEND

Where we are unable to activate an entire week, we ensure we can still fundamentally impact youth around the country. Aligning to the District Development Model and industries set for growth, we activate between 5 and 10 industry stages over a period of three days with a jam –packed programme designed to inspire, connect and transform.

EMPOWAYOUTH INDUSTRY FOCUS

Many industries are highly complex and offer numerous career streams. We activate Industry-Focussed Summits to hone in on these, and to enable youth to get a full understanding of specific industries. Of course, opportunities are always abundant – with youth able to apply for specific jobs, get training or bursaries, or funding for an entrepreneurial idea within the specific industry.

EMPOWAYOUTH

EmpowaYouth is a highly effective platform that brings real and relevant opportunities to where the youth are, across the nation. We know that our young people desire to be viable contributors to society and their communities – all they need is an opportunity. In addition to the EmpowaYouth Week, where we host 20,000 youth, with over 200 speakers, the EmpowaYouth Weekends that are activated nationally, this platform offers insight and trends within the context of semi-rural and peri-urban township youth, bespoke youth activations and campaigns and so much more. We know what the youth of our country want and need, and we know how to deliver it to them in a way that resonates with them – fundamentally transforming their lives. We have numerous case studies and testimonials from the young people we have impacted, which you can view here: https://shorturl.at/dfgmv

To date, EmpowaYouth has impacted over 60,000 youth around the country with real and relevant opportunities for jobs, training, and entrepreneurial funding through our dedicated partners. EmpowaYouth’s success lies in the fact that we bring opportunities to where the youth are, not just giving them inspiration and information, but connecting them to people, organisations and opportunities that will fundamentally transform their lives.

EMPOWAWOMEN

The EmpowaWomen Summit aims to break barriers, shatter glass ceilings, and inspire change by providing a space for women leaders to connect, learn, and amplify their voices. The underrepresentation of women in key sectors not only hinders progress towards gender equality but also deprives these industries of the diverse perspectives and innovative ideas that women bring. By addressing the specific challenges faced by women in diverse industries, this summit seeks to foster a collective determination towards creating a more inclusive and equitable future.

With day one reaching 1,000 women leaders and focussing on leadership, our gala dinner will host 1,000 women, and day two is an exploration of 20 different industry sectors, enabling the 8,000 women in attendance to unpack their industries in terms of transformation, as well as network across industry sectors. Our speakers will inspire the audience and galvanize change. To get a sense of what can be expected, please view this short video from the 2023 Annual Leadership Summit, where we focussed on eight industry sectors with an audience of 1,000 women: https://n9.cl/rk3b6
