Youth Forum to be launched

2017-09-21 06:00

KOUGA Municipality would like to invite all young people and youth organisations to the launch of ward-based Youth Forum at Ward 4 in Humansdorp this evening.

The target age is young people aged from 16 to 35 years old.

Social Services Portfolio Councillor, Daniel Benson, said the launch of the forums for Wards 3, 5, 8 and 11 took place earlier this week.

The launch of the Ward 4 Youth Forum will take place at 18:00 this evening (21 September) at the Kruisfontein Civic Centre.

“The purpose of Youth Forums is to allow young people to participate actively in governance issues of their wards and to organise the youth to speak with one voice on issues affecting them,” he said.

“Youth Forums have already been established in Kouga’s other 10 wards as well. We look forward to getting young people from these five wards on board as well,” he said.

He encouraged young people to attend the launch. “For these platforms to be successful, young people from all walks of life and inte-rests need to get involved, be it business, agriculture, sport, school, arts and culture, faith-based organisations, politics, community policing, the unemployed and those fighting against drug and substance abuse.”
