Nzalo Careers is determined to give back to the community and recently hosted an interactive educational event in Kagiso.

Sedzani Netshitenzhe, an advocate for youth development, founder and Managing Director of Nzalo Careers, saw a gap in educating learners and empowering them with tools that will help navigate them through life.

Nzalo Careers representatives travel throughout South Africa to make sure that every learner is exposed to enough information for a successful future.

Exhibitors such as the University of South Africa (Unisa), Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), South African Police Service (SAPS), Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI), Rosebank College, Boston, Oval International, Freedom Park and more informed and educated learners about school exits and opportunities after high school that can assist in furthering their education. They were also provide with application forms.

The exhibition attracted over 600 learners from Madiba Secondary School, Thuto Pele Secondary, SG Mafaesa Secondary and Rietvallei Ext 5 Secondary. Prior to the event, Nzalo Careers reached out to the farm schools in the area that were too far from the venue to attend the expo.

Kelebogile Legagane felt that she had found her future career.

These schools included Ithuteng Secondary, Magaliesburg Secondary, Matla Secondary, Magaliesburg State School and Schaumburg Combined.

The educational events are designed to help Grade 12 learners by –

• exposing them to a wide variety of career options

• helping them apply for tertiary education and bursaries on time

• exposing them to other avenues towards the world of work

Grade 12 learners had a great platform to engage with various organisations and also access professionals who can guide them and address any challenges they are facing.

Nzalo Careers thanks the community of Kagiso and the Department of Education for allowing them into their community to give them the opportunity to showcase different career choices.
