  9. Role of Umsobomvu in NYSP • In 2003 Implementation Plan was developed and adopted by Cabinet • The Umsobomvu strategy was to ensure that there was a national framework which would ensure the implementation of NYS to scale • 5 000 young people will commence the project in 2004. • The responsibility for implementing this programme falls to many agencies. UYF’s responsibility is to resource the youth development components. • The National Youth Service Programme is an initiative of the Presidency and managed by a Project Partnership Team. Govt. dept. are resource agents.

  10. Role of Umsobomvu UYF will support the youth service programme in a number of ways, including: • Funding for the youth development components; • Assisting with exit opportunities; • Running capacity building for the institutions that are managing the programmes; and • Developing the training material and running the training programmes for the technical advisors and the programme and institutional assessors. • Many of these roles are likely to be particularly intense during the first phase of implementation. • In the immediate term UYF is developing the scope of the initial service projects with govt. departments.

  23. Lessons Learned • UYF Investments • UYF investments are skewed to infrastructure, labour, capacity building and operational costs • Currenty the average YACs costs are: • ± 45% on Infrastructure and Operations • ± 40 % on Labour and Capacity Building • ± 15% on Direct Programme Related (some programme costs are built into Labour costs) • Scale and Sustainability will be achieved through Partnerships (to be covered later)

  24. Partnerships, Sustainability and Scale • Key Principles of Sustainability • Working through Infomediaries • Deploying innovative dissemination tools – Internet Portal, Community Print Media, Radio, On-demand Print, On-demand Mulit-media Datacasting • Through Partnerships with: • GCIS – 2000 Points of Presence (POPs), databases of 5000 + government services • MPCCs – projected 50 sites nationally • USA Telecentres – projected 100 sites nationally with internet connectivity • DoL Labour Centres – approximately 150 sites nationally • Local Governments - approximately 290 local governments • LoveLife Centres – as sites for info dissemination • Strategic partnerships with Youth Formations and Bodies – SAYC, NYC, etc. • Network of Municipal Libraries • Network of Higher Education and FET Institutions Libraries/ Student Centres • Mindset Livelihoods Channel – 800 000 households, 2000 schools • Community Radio – average of 80 000 listenership per station • Use Youth Advisory Centres for learner recruitment & reference purposes

  25. CIC going forward Key to CIC Impact: • Move Information Content to where Young People are – focus less on physical infrastructure and more on creating access • Use ICT to effectively develop, manage and disseminate content • Target UYF investments to information content development and training of infomediaries • Ensure integration with partners who share common purpose

  26. Performance • UYF pioneering almost all the initiatives in South Africa • 2 years of programme experience. Growing i.t.o geographic coverage & scale • Received R855 milliion, committed R500 million to 88 projects. More than 100 000 young people have participated in UYF projects

  27. Challenges • Risk of being perceived as a panacea • Improving access especially for rural areas • Launch of the “Take it to the People” concept • Recruitment of Prov. Coordinators • Dependancy on partners • Youth development agenda not mainstreamed • Diminishing resource base (sustainability) • Capacity (internally & externally)

  28. Challenges • Capacity of Service Providers – OD, accreditation, partnerships & job development • Formalise partnerships with the public and private sector institutions = sustainability
