Welcome to Kliptown Youth Program
"From Poverty to Opportunity" 


KYP’s mission is to provide opportunities that will enable our young people to rise out of poverty.

We seek to develop young and dynamic individuals who are willing to contribute effectively for the betterment of their community

Our tutoring, athletic, and arts programs provide a life to the children of Kliptown not defined by survival, but by the ability to be active community members, to have dreams, and most of all to have hope about the future

SERVICES SETA gives an opportunity to all KYP STAFF members and  97 youth in Kliptown to up-skill themselves

We would love to take this opportunity and thank the Services SETA organization for giving a bursary to all our staff members to develop themselves personally and professionally. On the 8th of February six of our staff members started their course in Project management at Wits University. Other members of our staff will be taking their qualification in other institutions such as Intec college, University of South Africa (UNISA) and Richfield Graduate Institute of technology.
A big thank you to Service SETA for such a great opportunity, our leaders are excited and ready to develop and learn.

The 11th of June 2015 marked the official launch of not just a great achievement but a dream that most young people are currently fighting for, a prayer that is a response to a number of youths future. As an organization for the youth by the youth we would love to take this opportunity and thank the Skills Education Training Authorities for giving us an opportunity to enroll 97 of our youth from Kliptown in learnerships doing Business administration with a monthly allowance.

Here's to an opportunity that will build our brothers and sisters, an opportunity that will allow them to develop and have a skill that they can use as a tool when they search for job opportunities. As they embark on this journey we would love to congratulate them. A thumbs up to Change.. When we see the fruits of great work, we are HAPPY.
