Volunteering, Job Readiness and Skills Development

Ikhaya le Langa Ambassador Program

A key focus is to tackle high(youth)unemployment in Langa. Through the Ikhaya Le Langa Ambassador Program, a Socio Economic development (SED) program, we deal with the attendant issues associated with never having had formal employment. Through an initial period of volunteering, this stepped ‘job readiness’ program, is a pathway to employment.

The long term unemployed are organized and receive personal benefits andvarioustraining in various fields including Neighborhood Watch, Broken Window Theory of Community Safety development, First Aid, and SMART living. Further training is offered to beneficiaries as the need arises which is tailored to an individual’s stage of development.
