The Umzi Wethu Livelihoods Programme aims to equip job seekers with the skills required to find work and to become valuable employees.
Orientation for the next Livelihoods Programme will take place on 23 January, 2012.
Classes will commence from 25 January to 22 February 2012. There are 10sessions, at the cost of R10 per session. Students are expected to attend all sessions in order to receive the full benefit of the programme. Classes start at 08h30 and end at 14h00.
The Umzi Wethu Livelihoods Programme combines an established job readiness training programme (Work 4A Living) together with a comprehensive life skills programme. The life skills aspect of the programme takes a holistic approach to student wellness with a focus on HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health, as well as environmental awareness. The environmental aspect is facilitated through 'green workshops' and links with other experiential education projects within the Wilderness Foundation.
