Ambassadors of the Decision Affects Destinies youth mentor programme attended a back-to-school event at the Colorado Park community hall last Friday.

The purpose of the event was to promote healthy alternatives for social ills.

Councillor Eddie Andrews said at the event that the City of Cape Town intended to ensure that after-hours youth programmes were provided at all facilities, to ensure many more youngsters were reached and educated on the importance of making the right choices as a young person.

At the event Andrews also thanked Letitia Carelse and Angelo Coetzee of Childline/ Lifeline, who coordinated the programme.

V Children between the ages of 12 and 14 years, who are interested in joining the programme, can contact Andrews on 021 444 8699, 082 377 1414 or eddie.­andrews@capetown.gov.za.
