#Mathub'Olusha Initiative

Seeza Network receives numerous requests each year from university and FET College students seeking opportunities to undergo work integrated learning (WIL) ranging from 6 to 18 months, which is mandatory for them to complete their qualifications. Without WIL opportunities, students get stuck and are unable to complete their programmes of study and begin their careers.

Seeza’s #Mathub’Olusha (Opportunities for Youth) initiative supports students and youth with a travel, tourism, hospitality and heritage training background who are seeking WIL and employment opportunities within the industry. The initiative connects WIL and employment opportunity seekers (students and youth) with opportunity providers – large and small – in the public and private sector. It is mandatory for students participating in a WIL programme to attend and complete an online entrepreneurship development programme to prepare themselves for possible business start-up after completing their training.

The initiative’s overriding goal is to increase youth participation in the travel, tourism, hospitality and heritage industry. The service is free of charge to opportunity seekers and providers but welcomes funding partnerships from those who support its mission.

To participate in the initiative please complete the applicable form and we will contact you. If interested in financially partnering with the initiative, please email Ms Nkoti Seloane, Seeza National Co-ordinator, at nkoti@seeza.today.
