SAAYC Youth Organization recruitment drive

The Southern African Association of Youth Clubs is a registered Youth Development Organisation since 1937. Our mission is to facilitate and implement integrated youth development programmes through collaboration with strategic partners for the benefit of young people in Southern Africa.

We facilitate training and programme support services to youth leaders, youth clubs, individuals, and youth organisations. As a coordinating body, our services include capacity building in running effective youth organisations, training in leadership skills, social entrepreneurship training, advocacy for youth work, computer & information communication technology training, and leadership seminars for youth- led organisations.

SAAYC encourages youth clubs in their locality to organize themselves as a force and catalysts in youth development.

Our approach to youth development views young people as active participants in their development and seeks to:

  • Influence positive thinking of young people.

  • Assist and support young people to challenge the odds.
  • Allow young people to determine the intervention and results of their development.
