YPA is a South African youth driven initiative that is focused on creating significant influence in Employment, Entrepreneurship and Education. It draws strength and resources from its professional network of young determined members to create high impact in society.
The organisation has collaborated with GIBS Business School to host the YPA RE-BOOT CAMP, an entrepreneurship development programme running over 14 weeks from 10 February. This is open to young professionals and anyone who is into business.
The programme will be facilitated by Karren Hidden and Dr Jonathan Marks (GIBS) and will have all the necessary academic rigour but is also highly practical and based on principles of experiential learning. The evening sessions will provide peer engagement and learning from practitioners and entrepreneurs who will bring first hand experience to the classroom environment.
Launching: 10 February 2017
Duration: 12 weeks (one evening a week, 6-9pm)
Cost: R2500 (total cost is R25000 YPA subsidizes R22500)
