THE Mandela Youth Leadership Summit 2019 held an afternoon of “Kaffee und Kuchen” (coffee and cake) to officially launch their inaugural event ahead of their Youth Day Summit, when they will hold the actual concept of the programme, set to be staged at the Madiba Capture Site in Howick.

“The Mandela Capture Site is one of the big four iconic struggle locations in KwaZulu-Natal, along with the Arya Samaj Manaye Hall, the Old Prison - Project Gateway and the Pieter­maritzburg Railway Station,” said African Link Global Events public relations and marketing executive Ursula Brown.

“The Mandela Youth Leadership Summit 2019 will elevate the importance of Mandela and his leadership lessons locally and globally.

“In the last couple of days, local media have highlighted the fact that at least 70% of the youth in SA are unemployed and this generation might possibly not even find employment.

“There is a clear urgency in entrepreneurial development in the youth and the need to be exposed to networking platforms, workshops and events,” said Brown, who added that they are keen on receiving various youths including those:

· aged 16 to 35

· pupils in leadership roles (Head Boys or Head Girls or prefects)

· role models

· project leaders

· sports achievers

· performance super-stars

· budding entrepreneurs

· opinion leaders

· movers or shakers
