A new approach to education. For youth, by youth
Is the youth really set up for success? Robyn and Jabulani share how the work they do at Touch South Africa aims to close the small gap between being a student and being a professional - by putting the two in touch and developing skills for the workplace. Jabulani Sibiya is the founder of Touch South Africa, a non-profit with a vision to transition young creatives in Africa into the creative industry and foster their skills development. He is also a Senior Strategist at M&C Saatchi, a national water polo coach for the junior men’s division and believes in the power of engaged, solution-orientated societies.
Jabulani gets out of bed each morning, motivated by the knowledge that he can impact someone's life, and loves the diverse cultures within South Africa.
Robyn Phillips is the Creative Lead at Touch South Africa, a non-profit with a vision to transition young creatives in Africa into the creative industry and foster their skills development. She’s also an Integrated Art Director at The King James Group, member of The Loeries Youth Committee - a board of 15 creatives under 30 from Africa and the Middle East - and a mental health and inclusivity activist who believes that if we do not undertake activities to include, we are indirectly excluding.
Robyn gives this talk to inspire others to assist young talent and cement the understanding that pulling up a seat for youth in the corporate industry is important. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community
