Again this year IkamvaYouth Gauteng was part of the Nedbank My Career, My Future initiative program, where they put the power of choice into the hands of the next generation of job seekers. Learners across the country are encouraged and given the opportunity to make things happen through this initiative.

“This program alerts learners on the career path to follow and the choices that they need to make at the start of their journey”, said Mr Mike Brown- CEO of Nedbank.

The Gauteng Branches of Ebony and Ivory Park started attending the Nedbank My Future, My career program last year and this year, with the great relationship IkamvaYouth has with Sunshine Solutions, we went on to attend two consecutive Sunday screenings at Sandton City on the 23rd of February and the 2nd of March. The two screenings taught learners about the right choices to make for different career paths they wish to follow in future. It also encouraged them to be responsible and commit to their studies. Ikamvanites went on to know about the different careers that are shown at the screenings, the first was about Transport and Logistics followed by Banking and The Financial Sector. Each learner walked away with a booklet that has all the information on different careers and institutions where they can go and obtain their qualifications. IkamvaYouth encourages learners to put their future into their own hands: which such programs like My Future, My Career initiative is all about.
