The MISA Young Workers’ Forum was established in November 2013 focusing on members and potential members between the ages of 18 and 35 years working within the retail motor sector.
The aim of the Young Workers’ Forum is to support the involvement of young people in their workplace and community, thus helping to empower them. By reaching out and responding to their expectations and ideas, while cultivating useful and long-lasting skills by way of education and training it is hoped that the participation of young workers can be encouraged.
Education is an essential building block in equipping an individual for future success. It is because of this that MISA firmly believes that the power of young workers lies in their ability and willingness to learn.
This is where our objectives, as young workers lie:
