Youth Development

Youth skills development is based on identifying an adult youth generally between that age of 18 to 23 years old who is from an under privileged background. Some are young single mothers or has lost his or her parents to HIV AIDS or was abandoned. Many of these youth are found or identified through our network, a local church or other Hilltop staff where the person is evaluated and it appears clear that this person is an outstanding individual, an honest person and vibrant, a person with potential. Primarily what is done is to identify the youths dreams and area of interest. Often times in order to start off the youth will be sponsored for a learnership taking a 6 month computer course through Hilltop Empowerment Centre. The overall mentoring and coaching process done by Robin Roberts usually takes about 12 to 36 months to achieve the results required so that the person can get employment and be a impressive professional person, a producitve South African Citizen.
