FRIENDS OF THE FOUNDATION
As a feeder to the Alternative Prosperity Youth Programme we fund the gold Youth Peer Education Programme. gold Youth Development Agency (gold-youth) develops peer leaders in the most vulnerable communities in South Africa, offering youth the opportunity to become peer educators and facilitator interns, setting them on a journey of leadership and employment.
From the pool of gold Grads and Facilitator Interns, gold-youth annually nominates peer leaders to take part in the Alternative Prosperity Diversity Living and Leadership Intervention. From those nominated, 30 are selected to attend one of the Diversity Living and Leadership workshops held in Johannesburg and Cape Town. At the workshops they get the opportunity to engage and co-learn with organisational leaders around issues of diversity and unemployment.
After the workshop we support these gold-grads for a year to build on the outcomes of the workshop. It is here that we need the Friends of the Alternative Prosperity Foundation to support the peer leaders in manner that you find meaningful.
