From a mere 86 ambassadors, a programme championed by the department of community safety has grown to more than 1000 stretching far and wide across the Western Cape.
At a launch event at West End Primary School on Tuesday (20 April), a new group of youth safety ambassadors were welcomed to the programme.

Fritz welcomed the new ambassadors and encouraged them to be good role models at the schools they are placed.
The ambassadors were further commended for their willingness to be part of the change.
