Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF)

YIPA Job Shadow Programme

Since October 2017, the Youth in Property Association (YIPA) has been teaming up with the Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF) to provide underprivileged Grade 11 and 12 learners with the opportunity to shadow individuals in the Cape Town property industry and transform the sector from the youth up. The YIPA Job Shadow Programme is held in collaboration with the UCT 100-UP initiative, a project run by the University of Cape Town which targets school learners from disadvantaged backgrounds to coach them towards university access. The job shadowing partnership with the WCPDF enables YIPA to expose the industry to learners even before they leave high-school, in order to grow skilled labour and create an entrepreneurial pool for this sector. Should you wish to participate during our next two-day programme in March 2020, please email admin@wcpdf.org.za. To see what the learners experienced in past programmes please see the information below.
