Our Skills Centre

Young Africa Botswana was founded in 2016. In March of that year, pioneers Maarten and Jelena started developing a plan for a training centre. The Young Africa Botswana (YAB) centre will be a place in Gaborone where young people can:
- Acquire skills through Vocational, Entrepreneurial and Life Skills programmess;
- Access information on important matters like, health, HIV, employment;
- Acquire basic ICT skills and develop and present their talents.

In 2017, the govenment will hand over an existing centre to Young Africa Botswana (Lady Masire Youth Centre), located in Gaborone West. In the 2nd semester, the ICT training starts. For more information, go here

We plan to establish a YAB brand that will sell artworks, jewellery, and clothes, and produce music and dance performances with young people from the YAB Centre. YAB's outreach programme to rural areas will target 600 young people per year. It is our plan to establish a satellite centre outside Gaborone to cater for youth in remote areas in the fourth year of our operation. The establishment of this satellite will be preceded by a thorough research and consultation with the relevant authorities.
