Premier Lazarus Kagiso Mokgosi, accompanied by the MEC for Arts, Culture, Sport and Recreation, Collen Maine and members of the Executive Council, will lead the Provincial Youth Day Commemoration to conclude Youth Month activities in the province.

In his acceptance speech following his election, Premier Mokgosi recently maintained that the creation of socio-economic opportunities for youth will top the agenda of the 7th administration.

This will among others be done through the roll-out of the Labour Activation Programme which will be coordinated by the Office of the Premier, in partnership with Department of Labour and Employment, business, employer organisations and other social partners. The programme is expected to create over thirty thousand work opportunities for young people.

Following his address Premier Mokgosi will officially open the Redirile Community Library. Some of the services available at the library includes internet connection, collection of various categories of books for youth and adults as well as a section of the library for visually impaired persons such as Non Visual Desktop Access (NVDA).

Provincial government departments will be onsite to render services to members of the public in an effort to promote a one stop shop for government information and services.

The Provincial Youth Commemoration will be held as follows:

Date : Saturday, 29 June 2024

Venue: Redirile Sports Ground (Kgetlengrivier Local Municipality, Derby)

Time : 08h00
