About the Outreach Foundation’s Youth Centre

The Youth Center officially opened to the public in October 2013 as an initiative of the Outreach Foundation. The Day Vision youth centre was started by young people in the community of Hillbrow who felt the need to bring the youth together and a place for young people to come relax and also acquire skills that will help them in their personal development. The main aim of the youth centre is to educate and empower the youth of Hillbrow, to instil positive values amongst the youth, to help unlock their potential and furthermore contribute towards their inner healing. The centre also has a social worker who deals personal issues affected by the youth. In order to make contact with young people and create a safe meeting space, the centre was established to encourages the youth to be more open-minded and allow themselves to broaden their horizon in their way of thinking and approach to life.
