Showcasing how these young people had benefitted from the unique job creation programme which brings performing arts, business and hospitality skills together; guests reacted very positively to the unique show. The one year programme offers talented youngsters who have no access to tertiary education an opportunity to learn skills with excellent employment opportunities as the outcome.
