Uniondale and Haarlem Youth Offices make a difference

The Youth Offices in Uniondale and Haarlem have had a successful year  to date with 4670 walk-ins assisting the youth with job applications, tertiary applications, business registrations and more. According to Jeffrey van Wyk, Youth Coordinator of Uniondale and Youth Officer, Christal Jansen a number of different projects are initiated throughout the year to achieve the George Council’s goal of youth development.

 

Walk-ins to the Youth Offices are given assistance in compiling CV’s, with referrals, enquiries regarding government departments, work related queries as well as learner support with assignments which has led to a number of young people successfully registering at tertiary institutions. The office is involved with training and development in conjunction with the Department of Labour to get the youth job ready and also to be registered on the department’s database.

 

The Youth Office also assists during municipal jamboree’s when the services of the municipality are taken to the community on specific dates. The Adopt a Granny programme has been fully rolled out in the rural areas of Uniondale and Haarlem. The Youth office assisted more than 236 old people in the Uniondale,Ongelegen, Avontuur, Noll, Eseljacht and Haarlem areas during the past year. Some of the programmes include pampering sessions, assisting at homes, motivational sessions, door to door visits and special meals on special days like Christmas. Another successful project has been the motivational sessions held for disabled people. Importantly the sessions have been taken to those unable to attend a central venue.

 

Van Wyk says young people are faced with different social issues specifically over weekends and the office  has started a weekend programme showing youth friendly motivational movies. More projects such as parent-child evenings, talent shows and fun and games are also planned for the youngsters.
