IkamvaYouth is a non-profit organization based in from Khayelitsha, Nyanga and Masiphumelele in the Western Cape, Ivory Park in Gauteng, the greater Cato Manor area and Molweni in KwaZulu-Natal. IkamvaYouth is a for-youth, by-youth leadership organization that focuses on self-empowerment of its students in grades 9-12. We volunteers are community members who are either international university students or past IkamvaYouth graduates who believe in making a change. We believe that students are the masters of their own futures and successes and only by challenging and supporting each one of them to believe in their own strengths and skills. By doing so, we believe that students will be better equipped with the proper skills for education as well as the job market. We not only focus on educational initiatives but also on social and civic initiatives. Our success is marked by the number of students who graduate from high school and progress to either university or success in the job market.
In the Western Cape, IkamvaYouth is hosting its annual Talent Show & Photography Exhibition in Makhaza.
