Welcome to Kliptown Youth Program
P o s i t i v e i n i t i a t i v e s b r i n g s u c c e s s . . .
KYP’s mission is to eradicate the poverty of mind, body, and soul and to fight against the disadvantages imposed on the children of Kliptown, by providing educational support and after school activities. It seeks to develop young and dynamic individuals who are willing to contribute effectively for the betterment of their community.
Our tutoring, athletic, and arts programs provide a life to the children of Kliptown not defined by survival, but by the ability to be active community members, to have dreams, and most of all to have hope about the future.
KYP NEWS : Our members graduate from City year...
Congratulations to our very own members who successfully graduated from an extraordinary and well-known youth development and transformation program in South Africa called City Year. For their commitment, they were honored for providing more than 1,300 hours of service as tutors, mentors, and role models. They made a difference in the lives of children and transformed schools and communities, broke down social barriers, inspired citizens to civic action, developed leaders for the common good and promoted the power of national services. Well done!
