What is TYI YOUTHINC?
TYI YOUTHINC. is a space where young, inspired leaders come to think, discuss and act upon issues that impact their ability to lead and be leaders. This is an opportunity for South African youth to engage with the dominant discourse, embrace otherness, and disrupt misguided narratives.
“Thinc” eludes to a think tank and network of young people, issues and ideas. The “inc” implies the empowering of young people by facilitating networks and resources that they may need to tackle serious youth issues. TYI YOUTHINC is both a platform and a resource; a place to meet like-minded leaders and a place to nurture and support them.
