Last week one our partnership programmes hosted the 3rd Digital Boot Camp which brought together more than 40 young people from across Cape Town. The GROW Academy is one of the leading programmes in South Africa to develop Digital Artisans providing an opportunity for unemployed youth to be equipped for the job market.
The week comprised of a number of different themes including communication, social media, WordPress, SEO and online fundraising. The participants will after this week follow it up with a 3 month placement as an intern with a non-profit or small business where they can apply their newly learned skills in practice. According to the participants the week has been a life-changing experience and this was made possible by the GROW Partners with the support from the DG Murray Trust.
