Much of the work of youth development professionals is organised around specific projects. They may be small projects designed by yourself and relevant stakeholders to solve very specific problems that you and they face. Alternatively, they may be part of much larger projects run by major funding bodies. Either way, project design and development is often expected to use certain techniques to ensure project quality. The aim of this program is to introduce you to the practices that have built up around the design and management of projects in the last few decades.

They pertain primarily to two matters, a “housing” crisis and the issue of criminality.
In the last municipal election in 2011, only 28 percent of young people aged 20-29 voted.
Before the first registration weekend for the poll this August, the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) says more than 80 percent of the 9.1-million eligible voters who are not registered were under 35 years old.
