SPHERE OF INFLUENCE
THE YOUTH MANDATE SHIFT TO EXCELLENCE
We are privileged to be part of a solution that brings good news to our nation’s future. Our youth are to be agents of change, and our young people’s inclusion in the peace and economic security agenda, and society more broadly, is key to building and sustaining peace. Their role in the workforce and economic development of our nation is critical as they represent, at any given moment, more than a third of the workforce in our country. In these times of change and conflict, young people also have an important role in deterring and solving conflicts and are key constituents in ensuring the success of both peacekeeping and peacebuilding efforts.
In South Africa, the ‘Youth Mandate Collaboration Platform (YMCP) is initiated with the Shift’s Youth Mandate Change Agent Program. It will concentrate on outstanding youth in different spheres of life, their capacity building and their role in bringing sustainable change in society. With the YMCP, the Shift wants to empower young leaders to take over responsibility in their society, and lead in a way that will inspire hope and encourage civil society to be productive citizens in South Africa. The overall aim of the program is to devise, strengthen and support the YMCP in South Africa, working on Peace, by building a culture of ethics, resolving conflict, and ensuring societal, family and enterprise change capability.
Our change agents will inspire responsibility and reveal purpose. The Shift has accepted the mandate as an integrated team of seasoned mentors and inspired, capable youth change agents to develop a master plan of human development for the youth. The Shift Solutions has been accepted to form a key building block with our strategic partners whose mandate and focus play out in Broad-Based Balanced Inclusive Socio-Economic Development Enterprise Initiatives for economic development transformation of SA.
