INFOGRAPHIC: SA youth believe in political engagement for change

A recent survey conducted by the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) found that South African youth are indeed interested in the politics of the country.

Over 1 000 learners were surveyed at the annual GIBS CareerExpo, held in Johannesburg as part of the GIBS Spirit of Youth Leadership Programme. The initiative is run by the GIBS Centre for Leadership and Dialogue and is made up of top learners in Grade 11 and 12 from a diverse range of township, inner city, former Model C and private schools.

Phyllis Byars, associate director of the GIBS Centre for Leadership and Dialogue said: “The feedback from this survey reveals that the youth of today are generally positive about their careers, current educational prospects and personal safety in South Africa.
