About Africa Jam

AFRICA JAM YOUTH OUTREACH is a non-profit, volunteer driven youth empowerment organization serving young people in South Africa. Africa Jam has been in existence for more than 13years and has served more than 15 000 youth by providing safe alternative programs by creating opportunities for youth to unlock their potential. Life orientation and skills training, after school programs, camp experiences and spiritual development.

Our Vision

Africa Jam’s vision is to provide hope, unity and community in the lives of  youth regardless of  race, culture, socio-economic background by empowering them with knowledge, life skills and providing them with opportunities to develop their God given talents and thus enhancing he well-being of their schools, community and nation.

Our Programs

Africa Jam’s five staff members use over 200 volunteers to reach approximately 13,000 youth per annum both directly and indirectly. We are a registered non-profit organization in both the United States and South Africa. Our organization serves youth through three core programs, including: Faith Enrichment, Social Upliftment and  Arts & Education. These include HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis education and prevention, Community service outreach, Mentoring and youth development and Tutoring.

CAMPS: Outreach and Leadership Camps bring together youth form all walks of life that are able to share common challenges. Workshop sessions help them to deal with these and  assist many of their peers who face similar issues. Leadership training, life orientation and skills provide greater opportunities for stronger community impact as leaders implement what they have learnt.

Our Focus

Africa Jam serves high school age youth (and more recently children and pre-teens below the age of 13 years) in some of the most economically disadvantaged townships of South Africa’s Cape region. Pockets  of young people in these communities regularly encounter violence, hunger, unemployment and the perils of violence, gangsterism, substance abuse and HIV and AIDS. Help is needed for building self-esteem, developing life skills and establishing a promising future.
