The monthly programme, which he has also successfully launched in Limpopo, Mpumalanga and Gauteng provinces, targets people between the ages of 15–35, creating a platform for them to be empowered through information sharing.
This is done through giving participants an opportunity to get to know each other and find solutions to youth-related issues during each session. There is also a WhatsApp group where people can share ideas and stay connected to each other.
‘The park is a suitable space where young people can share ideas without having to dress or try to meet a certain standard,’ said Gamede. ‘It is a space where young people can be free and refreshed. It promotes unity, Ubuntu, love and caring among young people through bringing them together to help each other. Education and success among young people are encouraged through career coaching sessions,’
Gamede is a lecturer at Varsity College, the author of the books: The Graduate Pack, A Practical Guide for Job Seekers, and Finishing your Qualification in Record Time, a Guide for Students.
He is also the Founder and CEO of Ilada Holdings, a Personal Development and Training Company.
The next Mentorship in the Park programme is this Saturday.
