The President’s Award for Youth Empowerment
The President’s Award for Youth Empowerment (TPA) is one of the leading youth achievement awards offering youth aged 14- 24, the opportunity to develop character, discover their purpose and determine their future to contribute to building a great South Africa.
The Award provides a framework of non-formal education and provides experiential learning opportunities to help young people discover talents that do not necessarily show up in the classroom context.
The Programme brings together practical experiences and life skills, building confidence, encouraging physical health and recreation; and motivating young people to engage with their communities.
Bidvest Prestige has provided funding to TPA of R300 500 for a 12-month period. This funding covers the enrolment of 200 learners into the Bronze Award programme as well as covering the costs of over 60 Bronze level activity completions.
Since the receipt of funds from Bidvest Prestige, TPA have channeled the funds into helping learners in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, KwaZulu Natal, Gauteng, Limpopo and Rustenburg.
