The Fourth Annual Gauteng Youth Expo hosted by the Gauteng Provincial Government took place at the Nasrec Expo Centre between the 9-17 June 2018. The Expo aimed at empowering young people with knowledge, skills and opportunities reached unimaginable success this year. Thousands of young people flocked the Expo eager to engage and participate in the various skills development activities and opportunities on offer. With a range of over 140 exhibitors providing information and live services on careers, jobs and entrepreneurship exposure, the Expo provided perfect grounds for support, dialogue and advice.
The Tshepo 1 Million Village at the Gauteng Youth Expo 2018 was a huge hit amongst work-seekers looking to start their journey to employment. The platform produced a high-energy, high-impact space for information, inspiration and support reaching over 6,500 unemployed youth alone in one week.
The Inspired Youth event was a hive of activity attracting more than 3000 school learners to a full programme of celebrity talks, educators and top-notch entertainment. Gauteng Provincial government was well represented with the Premier and his MECs in full attendance. The Expo also enjoyed some incredible support from Corporate South Africa. Away from the seriousness of the week-long event, the Tshepo 1 Million DJ Search Competition in partnership with YFM saw 15 finalists battle it out for the ultimate bragging rights which went to the undeniable DJ TshiDye.
The 2018 GP Youth Expo is testament that Gauteng Government is working hard to open up opportunities for young people whilst inspiring committed youth to pursue their dreams despite challenging circumstances.
