What we do

The Young Workers’ Forum is involved in various projects around the country through-out the year, for example:

  • Wellness Week: During this fun-filled and educational week, there are various initiatives and activities such as “The biggest loser” and a presentation on MISA and its benefit offerings, competitions, etc.
  • Soft skills training: Training of young workers within the Retail Motor Industry to better equip them for workplace challenges.
  • Various Community Projects: These include Cancer drives and initiatives, self-defence sessions for women in support of the 16 days of activism and ending Gender-Based violence, winter drives with children’s homes, and other fundraising activities such as disability awareness. The Young Workers have also been extremely involved in projects combating GBV.
