City Year: Helping Young People and Children Succeed - 16 September 2011

Memela Pratt & Associates were invited to give a motivational talk to City Year, a non profit organisation that brings together a diverse group of young people for a year of voluntary service and leadership development. Our Head of Research and Operations, Carlene Royle, and our Team Leader, Tuki Modiselle, presented the talk. They gave the City year youth leaders tips and guidance on how to add value to ones CV as well as how to prepare for future job interviews. The youth were encouraged to believe, to have hope and to persevere.  There were many salient points and questions raised, and hopefully these will assist the youth in successfully securing future employment opportunities.

 Nelson Mandela Day - 67 minutes for Madiba in Kagiso


Mandela Day is a call to action for people everywhere to take responsibility for making the world a better place, one small step at a time, just as Tata did.
