Job help for youth

2016-02-23 06:00

Unemployed youth in ward 88 are invited to participate in a skills development project which can lead to a lucrative own business.

Ward 88 includes New Woodlands, Lentegeur (South of the R300, west of AZ Berman Drive, north of Highlands Drive, east of the railway line), Philippi, Philippi Park and Heinz Park.

Funds have been allocated to a five-day cellphone repair training workshop to empower unemployed youth to start their own business and to become self-sustainable.

Fifteen participants can do the training which will start in April. After completing the training, each participant will receive a basic business box with equipment to start his own cellphone repair business.

Interested youth between the ages of 18 and 20 must meet certain criteria:

. Must have matriculated last year.

. Must not be currently studying at a tertiary institution.

. Must live within ward 88.

. The total income of the household must be under R3500.

The closing date for applications is 9 March. Applicants are requested to deliver a certified copy of their matric certificate, identity document, proof of address, a one-page CV and a one-page motivational letter.

These supporting documents, along with an application, must be dropped off at the reception at the subcouncil 23 offices at the Lentegeur administrative building on the corner of Melkbos and Merrydale avenues.

All successful candidates will be notified by the subcouncil.
