First Thursday with Mayor | Youth Sector on the 2nd of March

First Thursday | Youth Sector

Join us for our next First Thursday session on the 2nd of March.

This session is aimed at the youth, aged 18 – 35. In our session this focus will be the following: engaging with and hearing from you. This will allow us to determine the needs you have around business and activities that will benefit you and the municipality you live in.

The motivation for this specific session comes off the back of a discussion the Mayor Leon Van Wyk had with a young accountant, Des-lie Van Wyk, who started SHIFT Entrepreneurs with his Board of Directors.

This Non Profit Organisation (SHIFT) is a dynamic group of young business people committed to creating a sustainable economy in George by giving young and aspiring entrepreneurs optimal opportunities for growth and success.

At this First Thursday engagement, SHIFT will speak more about what they do and how they plan to positively impact the local George community. We welcome you to make any contributions that can further benefit the community.

Ideally, this is a forum that facilitates interaction between accountants, attorneys, businesspersons, farmers, brokers, etc. However, we are opening up this platform to all of you.
