Young people growing up in the township of Barrydale and on the surrounding farms often have poor family role models and limited exposure to life styles outside of their own confined and isolated environment.
To address this situation Net vir Pret offers educative programmes designed to stimulate social and mental development and to improve employability. We provide support in school work through our Homework Club and develop skills such as leadership and communication via our Young Leaders Programme and our Internships.
We also motivate youngsters in their final school year to plan realistic career paths and assist them with identifying appropriate courses of study. Once they have decided what they want to do, we assist with applications to institutions, registration procedures and applications for hostel accommodation and financial aid.
