Facilitating a number of workshops throughout the year, Sela Emthonjeni trains young people and life orientation teachers in areas vital for success in their working lives. Communication, writing, learning and presentation skills are amongst the key areas of focus of workshops taking place at Sela. The organisation also provides the support that young people need when applying for jobs, tertiary education and bursaries.
Lulamile Maciko is one young person who has benefited from the work that Sela does. “I’m very proud of what I’ve managed to do after my workshops at Sela,” Lulamile says, “They taught me how to communicate and work with people, how to solve problems and how to dress and act appropriately in a work environment. I am now a team leader at a manufacturing company and I got this job after completing one of their workshops.”
Mrs Ndava of Lumko High School in the Eastern Cape has found the workshops to be extremely beneficial for herself and her learners, “The stuff I learnt from Sela was simply outstanding,” she says, “The children have responded very positively and some are applying for jobs as we speak. I can see how the power of a positive attitude that Sela promotes has made my learners more eager to learn and gather information about what they want to do with their lives .”
