RE: ACTIVATE! CHANGE DRIVERS- A NETWORK OF YOUNG LEADERS EQUIPPED TO DRIVE MEANINGFUL CHANGE IN SOUTH AFRICA IS RECRUITING.
“Step across the very real barriers that define and divide our country”
ACTIVATE! Change Drivers as an existing network of 2500 young people across the various corners of South Africa is looking to recruit active citizens between the ages of 20-30 years .These young people will be active citizens who have an inherent passion for changing the narrative of young people on how they are perceived (lazy and passive with no desire to contribute meaningfully to the activities aimed at improving this very diverse country).
With negative and shocking statistics on heavy rotation everyday that are effectively affecting South African youth such as unemployment, lack of access to resources, the lack of meaningful stakeholder engagements aimed at making local government work- it therefore calls for a dedicated group of active citizens who will attempt to attend to such needs.
The ACTIVATE! Change Drivers program is meticulously designed to CONNECT young people to other people in the country doing meaningful work in their various spaces with the aim of challenging the status quo. It is aimed at PROVOKING and guiding worthwhile conversations that lead to robust discourse that will pave the way to a more unified and socially/economically inclusive country. Through the program we aim to INFLUENCE,INSPIRE and EQUIP young people to recognize their strength and wealth of power vested on them to identify the ills plaguing our varying societies. The identification of such societal ills will in turn lead to solutions and interactions of consequence with stakeholders, media, funders, resources, decision makers to collectively creating a future worthy of our longing.
