The 2017 National Rural Youth Service Corps’ (NARYSEC) graduation ceremony saw at least 869 participants who attended a Youth Leadership Development Programme (YLDP) at 3 SAI Military Base in Kimberley graduating.

The objective of the YLDP training is to inculcate discipline and patrio­tism, as well as teach them vocational skills such as basic personal financial management, occupational health and safety orientation, hygiene, fire fighting and civic education, among others.

The programme targets unemployed youth from the rural areas who have completed a minimum qualification of Gr. 12.

According to the MEC for Rural Development and Land Reform in the Northern Cape, Norman Shushu, who presided over the graduation ceremony, the programme has, since its inception in 2010, benefitted thousands of young people from across the country.

Training completed by some of the NARYSEC recruits include Nature Conservation, Plumbing, Electrical Engineering, Office Administration and Building and Construction.

The programme is implemented by the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development and is intended to contribute towards the state’s broader skills development initiatives for the country’s youth.
