DSD Youth-at-risk Mentoring Project


We want to see those vulnerable youth and young adults (14 – 35 years old) that have dropped out of school and/or are not involved in work or full-time training to be connected to work, study or training opportunities. Through providing them with a mentor, their belief in their own potential will flourish and they will connect themselves to work, study and training opportunities, becoming valuable, responsible and generous members of their communities.

Who? Where?

Currently this project is running in various communities in Cape Town – from Ocean View to Mitchells Plain and the wider Cape Flats.

We are always looking for mentors who are willing to take on an at-risk youth and walk alongside them – send in your application today!
