2014 Ministerial Youth Excellence Awards
The DSD Youth Development Strategy proposes an Annual Youth Excellence Colloquium and Awards Ceremony to be hosted by the Minister for Social Development. The Colloquium will enable a wide range of stakeholders involved in youth development to reflect on best practices, to share ideas, to network and break new ground in the field of youth development. The awards ceremony will provide the opportunity for government to recognise, affirm and reward excellence in youth development both inside and outside of government. Participation in the colloquium and the awards ceremony will be open to funded and non-funded youth development programmes and initiatives. The awards will also recognise outstanding individuals that have contributed towards youth excellence in their respective fields of endeavour.
