Careerlinx 2019! We believe we can fly!

We entered 2019, fully trusting God to put our programmes on steroids in seeing many more young people’s lives impacted and empowered to soar and watched it enfold with grateful hearts.
During 2019 an additional 20 learners unemployed young adults from our adult based literacy programme transitioned onto the learnership, and another eleven in June 2019, bringing the total leaners on our first-year pilot to 25 unemployed young adults.

We managed to increase numbers of adult based Literacy classes to sixty unemployed young adults in 2019, yet again they al passed their external exams, many of them with merits.

The year ended on a positive note where we could transition twenty new young adults from our AET programme onto Learnership programme to start January 2020 and secured funding for the next twenty Aet Literacy students in January 2020..

Some highlights

In July Careerlinx enrolled learnership students on a two-day Robin Hood entrepreneurship conference, and they were inspired, and four of our students won a printer coming from a background where very little good happens to them; it was a miracle for these young people. It was also heart-warming to read the messages of congratulations on the groups of fellow students who were so happy for them. The learnership students have become a supportive community developing an incredible report with Careerlinx staff and facilitators.

In August We had our Feb2019 Aet Literacy student group graduation ceremony and it was the best one we have had to date. We invited the learnership students to also join us as their learnership sponsors were going to attend, as well as the fact that a large portion of level 3 graduates, had already started the learnership in June 2019. It was an exceptional occasion with a wonderful combination of speakers including the sponsors and sone of the learners thanking the Careerlinx and the sponsors.
