HERE’S WHAT YOU GET BY JOINING OUR LOCALLY ROOTED NETWORK

Collaboration On Projects

Our online communities enable YDOs to find potential partners for collaborative projects. By connecting with organizations with complementary missions or expertise, NGOs can join forces to tackle complex issues and create a more significant impact through joint initiatives.

Increased Visibility

Being part of our community can enhance the visibility and credibility of your organisation. Through participation in discussions, sharing of success stories, and showcasing your work, organisations can gain recognition within the community and attract potential partners, donors, volunteers, and supporters.

Expert Guidance

We collaborate with experienced professionals, mentors, and subject matter experts to deliver high-quality content and guidance. Our members have access to expert-led webinars, workshops, and courses covering a wide array of topics such as leadership, communication skills, career exploration, mental health, and more.

Opportunities For Networking And Collaboration

Our online community provides a valuable networking platform where YDOs can connect with peers who share similar interests and aspirations. This opens doors for collaboration on projects, knowledge sharing, and the formation of meaningful relationships that can extend beyond the online space.

Knowledge Sharing And Best Practices

We collaborate with experienced professionals, mentors, and subject matter experts to deliver high-quality content and guidance. Our members have access to expert-led webinars, workshops, and courses covering a wide array of topics such as leadership, communication skills, career exploration, mental health, and more.

Skills Development

We emphasize the acquisition and enhancement of practical skills that are vital for personal and professional success. Through our community, you can access curated resources and interactive learning materials to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, time management, and effective communication skills.

Resource Sharing

We are aware community members often face resource constraints, be it financial, human, or technological. Our online community provides a platform for sharing resources such as fundraising strategies, grant opportunities, volunteer recruitment techniques, and technology solutions. This sharing of resources can help organisations overcome limitations and achieve their goals more effectively.

WHAT SOME MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY

“I think that gathering like-minded people who are all collaborating to make a difference in the youth in South Africa is what we need. And so for all organisations that are doing something in the youth space, be part of this because we really can do something big together.”

“I feel like the Ecosystem Map is very important for us to understand, who is in the space. We understand that we can’t really solve all of the issues around youth development in our own silos. So we do need to collaborate and work together and this will help.”
