Commitment to Action

Building Youth Leaders across South Africa through Radio

Commitment by

Children's Radio Foundation

In 2013, Children's Radio Foundation (CRF) committed to develop 220 youth leaders across 14 communities in South Africa over a two-year period. In partnership with local community radio stations, the CRF will expand its current youth radio reporting program to include a Leadership Development Training Program, providing youth reporters with mentors, skills development programs, and other community-based support to create and achieve their educational and career goals. Currently, many youth in South Africa do not understand their own potential and as many as 20 percent do not expect to be employed in their lifetimes. Through this program, youth reporters will develop the critical skills necessary to develop the community engagement and analytical skills to lead their country in the years to come.
