NATIONAL YOUTH MONTH

June is celebrated as Youth Month in South Africa, with a specific focus on 16 June, which is also known as Youth Day.  Youth Month pays tribute to the school pupils who lost their lives during the 16 June 1976 uprising in Soweto.

This year marks the 39th anniversary of the Soweto uprisings, and in honour of this, the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) has developed a national programme under the theme of “Youth Action for Economic Freedom in Our Lifetime”.
