Active Communities Network South Africa (ACN SA) was established in 2011 as a locally registered partner organisation to Active Communities Network (ACN UK). The aim of the NPO is to capacity build local organisations, staff and young people with the vision to strengthen
resilience, empower youth and develop stable and cohesive communities across South Africa. On a practical level, this would take the form of accredited and non-accredited educational programmes for people from disadvantaged communities. It would also involve the identification of employment pathways for those who have benefited from the training. In order for the organisation to grow, it is key to monitor those pathways and publish case studies of success
stories to promote the work of ACN SA.
ACN SA has an ongoing partnership with eta College. eta College is a private, accredited sport and fitness college based in Cape Town, South Africa. eta College is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training as a private higher education college. eta College supports ACN SA with accredited skills programmes and have been enabling people to launch their careers in fitness, sport coaching and the business of sport since 1984.
