programme delivers a holistic service to youth at risk in the
inner city of Johannesburg.
Basic Care and promoting
Annually 20 female and 20 male youth are taken off the streets and
placed in the 10-month Entrepreneurial training programme. Skills- and
self development training is presented. Youth who need less
intervention will be referred to the training programmes of
Entuthukweni. A follow-up period of a year follows the training period
assisting graduates to find employment. During the training and
follow-up period the youth are assisted with social relief e.g.
accommodation, food, clothing etc.
Outreach workers do outreaches to the streets and build relationships
with the children/youth on the streets. Individual Development Plans
are drawn up for each child/youth. A drug rehabilitation programme is
available. Two meals per day are provided from the drop-in centre.
Shower and washing facilities are available. Family preservation is
done to reunite youth with their families. Assistance is given to youth
who are in conflict with the law and the Family Group Conference
diversion programme is implemented.
