YA Walvis Bay
YA selected Walvis Bay to set up the first Young Africa Skills Centre. This coastal industrial harbour town attracts many job seekers from all over the country, most of them being unskilled youth, who end up in the townships, living in shacks. Young Africa originally planned to support the development of a new Vocational Training Centre in Walvis Bay. This was in response to a clearly identified need and gap: there is no current provider of vocational training services in Walvis Bay, yet the demand for skilled labour in this industrial town is high. However, it proved impossible to identify suitable, affordable premises or land, and so Young Africa looked for alternative ways to meet the needs of young people. Vocational training for young people is provided through two channels: firstly by partnering with existing industry to offer short vocational skills training courses and secondly by providing training in solar technology at YA’s own premises in Walvis Bay. The YA premises are also used for Life Skills and Entrepreneurship training.
