BETHLEHEM. – The career exhibition expo for matriculants will be held on Friday (15/04) at the Bethlehem Showgrounds.

It will be presented by the Youth Development Office in conjunction with the Office of the Executive Mayor of Dihlabeng.

The exhibition will commence with a march by high school learners.

The march will start at the Bethlehem Town Hall at 08:00 and will move to the showgrounds, were the exhibition will open at 10:00.

The purpose is to highlight the high levels of substance abuse, which is becoming an epidemic within the Dihlabeng community.

It will also highlight the scourge of racism which has recently surfaced in the country.

“We have partnered with the Phaphama Youth Club from Clarens to present this exciting project, which is aimed at empowering the youth in career choices,” said Vusi Dlamini, the Dihlabeng youth development officer.

He said young people were becoming daily victims of drugs, alcohol, dagga and various other substances that were affecting a healthy life style.

“Because of all those things, they can’t focus on their future, since these are distractions,” he said.

Stall-holders will be awaiting these scores of learners to equip them with information regarding career choices.

Dlamini said this project was the first in a series that would be presented as an introduction to Youth Month, which is in June.

The Dihlabeng School Choir competition will be held on Thursday, 28 April.

He said the youth needed to be encouraged to take education seriously, as it was the foundation of their future.

All information gathered at the exhibition will come in very handy when plans regarding careers are made at a later stage.

Dlamini said the day would conclude with entertainment by Jacob, Andrianto and Tactics.
