Origin is proud to announce the launch of it’s Youth Development Programme [YDP]. This programme is designed to give under-privileged young people in our community work experience within our business. At the end of their time with us there is a possibility of them getting employment with us, if we have positions available. If we have no positions available they will receive a certificate of reference from us outlining the experience they have gained, so they are able to begin their search for work with some experience under their belt.
Our first volunteer/candidate, Khanuile, trained in our cafe and he has subsequently been offered a job with us, which he has accepted. He is committed and eager to learn. “Khanuile is a great example and start to the programme, we are excited to be welcoming him to the Origin Team” says Azola Tafeni [pictured below with Khanuile] , the Origin YDP programme team leader.
