Representatives from several South Africa-based agencies visited YBN to learn about the agency’s holistic youth development model and best practices around youth engagement.

Individuals from the Department of Public Works, the National Department of Arts and Culture, the National Treasury, and Department of Small Business Planning took a tour of YBN’s program facility, spoke with YBN staff and graduates and toured partner school Newark Leadership Academy. This is the fourth international group YBN has hosted – we have previously hosted YouthBuild Israel, YouthBuild South Africa, and YouthBuild Brazil.
