Lerato Selepe started this petition to Executive Mayor of Maluti-A-Phofung

It is with no doubt that the problems faced by the youth in Maluti-A-Phofung municipality are far from ending, and with that in mind I have identified a gap which has been niche for scammers and people who want to benefit at the expense of the disadvantaged community. As a young guy who grew up in a community with no career centre, it was hard for me to decide on what to do after completing my matric and this did not only affect my life post matric, it also affected my chances of getting employment opportunities as there is no centre that mentors, guides and share job opportunities with the youth. 

In March 2021, I was touched by an ad that was played at our community radio station which called on all unemployed youth to come enroll for learnerships in various field, but the ad too a drastic turn when applicants (who are unemployed) were asked to bring along R800. 

My question was the, how can I bring R800 for a learnership opportunity if I am unemployed? 

It was this particular incident that made me think about something that will benefit our youth at large, without costing them a cent. 

My plea to the municipality is to establish a centre where employers will share their available opportunities with the youth, and this centre should also be able to help our youth draft CVs, motivational letters, and to prepare for interviews.
