HELPING SOUTH AFRICAN YOUTH SHINE
Established in 1958, Girls & Boys Town (GBT) is a national non-profit organisation that runs proven and successful programmes to strengthen vulnerable youth. Through a combination of interventions we, on average, assist between 16 000 to 20 000 beneficiaries a year.
Our core focus is to remove the obstacles and barriers that prevent children from finding their light – and helping them to Shine.
GBT IS THUS COMMITTED TO WORKING WITH:
- Vulnerable children both placed into our therapeutic residential campuses nationally, via the Children’s [not criminal] Courts
- Children and families in their own communities and family homes nationally, where they are identified as being vulnerable
- Community schools nationally, where learners face obstacles and barriers to learning
- Researching youth in transition as we reach for identifying indicators of success for youth and contributing to the local and international professional knowledge field.
