Rachel’s Angels mentorship programme empowers the youth

Spurgeon-Haddon Wilson - Project Manager of Rachel’s Angels mentorship programme joined us on the line to tell us more about how Entrepreneurship could positively change the future of SA’s youth. Launched in 2007 Rachel’s Angels mentorship programme is aimed at Grade 11 and 12 learners, with an emphasis on improving academic abilities and life skills in order to help them to deal more effectively with post-matric challenges. The programme takes place across four months aiming to empower participating scholars with the necessary entrepreneurial skills to make a constructive contribution to the South-African economy. Scholars attend workshops and under the leadership of industry experts, are taught fundamental entrepreneurial skills, tasked with drafting a business plan, identifying a need within their communities; they then develop a product for it. They then given a chance to sell their product at the Rachel’s Angels Market Day on April 27th, 2013 with all profits ploughed back into the community.
