The City of Cape Town is hosting a number of events to mark Youth Day on Saturday 16 June 2012.
Youth Day, which falls on a weekend this year, commemorates the 1976 Soweto uprisings, and honours those young people who lost their lives in the struggle against apartheid.The City’s Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department is joining with a number of stakeholders to put on programmes and events at its community facilities.

These programmes will be centred around themes such as arts and culture; recreation; street football; netball; and indigenous and board games.

The department is also busy planning a holiday programme for the upcoming school holidays.

Youth in Action Expo

Meanwhile, the City is also hosting the Youth in Action Expo, which will take place at the Zip Zap Circus School in the Artscape Gardens on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 June 2012.

The expo is targeted at youths between the ages of 16 and 28 who may not have access to tertiary education. It aims to make the youths aware of the alternatives and opportunities that are available to them in the workplace.

It will promote areas such as development, skills transfer, job creation, social cohesion and poverty alleviation.

Industries that will be showcased at the Youth in Action Expo are the music business, performing arts, sports management, catering and hospitality, arts and crafts and make up and fashion.

There will be exhibitions, workshops, talks, performances and a talent competition. Executive Mayor, Alderman Patricia de Lille, will address the expo at 14:00 on Friday 15 June.

Registration is required. The expo is free, and runs between 10:00 and 17:00 on both days.
