Youth Work Experience [Tshwane]Youth Health Africa is a registered Not for organization which provides a one-year skills development program empowering disenfranchised youth through work experience in healthcare facilities. The youth are empowered with quality working experience and a stipend, as well as with in-depth knowledge about HIV and TB, and in turn are equipped to strengthen our country’s response to HIV. Youth undergo various training curriculum not only to fulfill their roles as, inter alia, lay counsellors, HIV self-screeners, patient facility navigators, data capturers and filing clerks but to inspire holistic development as young ambassadors, leaders and societal agents for change.
The program is unique in its focus on personal growth and development, and once a month all youth on the program attend Development Days. These sessions cover career strategy, mental health and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), among other thematic areas. The program is further integrated with Demand Creation Activities, Educational Digital Media Campaigns and Youth Zones Strengthening and Adolescent and Youth Friendly Services (AYFS) support.
