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 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 UCT100UP 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 these learners leave high-school, in order to grow skilled labour and create an entrepreneurial pool for this sector. The next job shadow programme will be run in April 2019. Watch this space for details. To understand more about the programme please see the information below.
