The YA Crèches provide Young Africa students and local families and with a safe and educational place for their children during the day. In the process it trains child minders.
Our restaurant Só Magia at YA Beira and the canteen at YA Chitungwiza are frequented by local people as well as catering for nearby workplaces and events. They train professional cooks and waiters during production.
Art and Sports Festivals:
Arts and sports play a huge role at Young Africa, not just for recreation but also as an effective way to reach out to the community and educate on important issues in a fun way. Annual arts and sports festivals always have an educative theme and draw big crowds.
The Outreach Programme at Young Africa Agri-Tech includes seminars on farming techniques and entrepreneurship training and assistance for small farmers in the area.
Local communities have access to libraries and internet cafés at YA centres. Our centres also provide spaces to play football, basketball and other sports. Resources such as a recording studio help young performers and media makers to perfect their work, and regular art workshops promote the creation and sale of local art.
