Youth Development Ecosystem Report: KwaZulu-Natal Province Summary

The Youth Development Collaboration Lab (YD Co-lab) initiated the Youth Development Ecosystem Mapping project as one of the key strategic activities that emerged from extensive consultations within and outside YD Co-lab.

The mapping aims to foster greater transparency among youth development stakeholders and ultimately enhance collective impact.

This initial overview of the youth development ecosystem will begin to change the YDO dynamics by offering a birds-eye view at this time. This will enable Youth Development Organisations to build programmes and services that target a particular focal area that is not already oversaturated and to capitalise on opportunities to work with other YDOs.
