UPS is currently funding six Be Entrepreneurial Programmes for Grade 9 learners in Gauteng. Schools participating the BE programmes are Bophelong Community School, Dawnview High School, McAuley House, Meyerton High School, Sandtonview Combined and Thembisa High School.
During the four day Be Entrepreneurial programme, learners are introduced to the business world through interactive games; through these games learners are taught how to compile a business plan, they learn about competitive advantage, ethics, financing, product development and social responsibility.
In total 267 learners will benefit from UPS’s generous contribution. “This is the second year that UPS has funded JA South Africa programmes, their contribution to South Africa’s youth is highly appreciated and the impact that their funding has on the communities these schools are in is clearly visible.” Said Linda McClure, Managing Director of JA South Africa.
