As the school year begins YLED is focused on bringing onboard 70 grade 11s for its Johannesburg-based Leadership & Entrepreneurship Programme

We have learned over the last 13 years that our model works as it has and continues to produce credible citizens that contribute to the economy, serve as role models and provide leadership wherever they are.

For the 2017 programme we will be recruiting young people from our partner schools (48), partner orphanage (2) and the broader Johannesburg-based community (20)

If you are based in and around JHB and know of a Grade 11 learner that will benefit from our programme - drop us an email for an application form at and check out our Facebook page for more information. Only 20 spaces are available.

If your brand or company needs a cause to support and you believe that YLED would be ideal as it aligns to your passion for preparing the youth for success. Get in touch with us about how you can get involved by emailing us at
