South-Africa

Our dream is to empower and transform the lives of 2 000 000 youth in South Africa over 5 years through Neuro-Coaching interventions.
According to UNESCO and UNICEF, the world’s population has surpassed seven billion, with people under the age of 30 accounting for more than half this number. The group called “NEET” (not in education, employment or training) often constitutes at least 10% of the youth population, and disproportionately includes youth with a low level of education in developing countries. In South-Africa nearly 30% of youth are unemployed. Millions of young people in South-Africa believe there is little hope and no future for them. Through Vision 20/20 we aim to change the mind-set and paradigms that are currently sabotaging our nation’s future by empowering youth to take ownership of their lives through creative solution focused thinking. We want to empower 100 000 youth coaches to reach 2 000 000 youth through Neuro-Coaching interventions. Coaching is the 2nd fastest growing industry worldwide.
South Africa faces a crisis with escalating youth unemployment. Recent figures show that the unemployment rate for young South-Africans with a matric (Grade 12) was 55% in the first quarter of 2019 rising to 58,4% for those with less than a matric. Even graduates show an unemployment rate of 31% during this period. This unemployment is negatively affecting morale of youth across the country, resulting in participation in criminal activity, drug abuse, violence and riots that lead to high mortality rates amongst the youth. The youth represents a powerful resource of the country provided that they are supported and able to become active members of society. Youth Development plays an important role in addressing the issues mentioned above. Over the last two decades Lusa has become an expert in Community and youth development in the South-African context. Through various successful interventions we have numerous impact studies highlighting the transformational change some of our programmes have achieved with youth in marginalized societies. The majority of youth going through our programmes have either secured employment, studied further or started their own businesses. This is further evidence of how the youth took ownership of their own destinies and utilized the skills and tools taught to change their lives. Learnings from our programmes include an in depth understanding of Neuro- Plasticity, Resilience, Personal Responsibility, Developing Self Awareness, Increasing Emotional Intelligence, Solution thinking and Social skills. The training is practical and empowers our youth to integrate the learnings in their lives as well as support and empower other youths.
