A 10-day Passport to Success (PTS) Training course, was conducted by 9Miles Project for unemployed youth in November and offers exciting new opportunities for youth in Sea Vista, Eastern Cape.

11 dedicated attendees diligently attended the 10-day course which was held at the Sea Vista Library from 10am – 3pm over two weeks in November. 
An internationally recognised course created by The International Youth Foundation, the life empowerment and entrepreneurship curriculum has been implemented in more than 50 countries and is used by many leading organisations such as Microsoft, McDonalds, Hilton Hotels etc.

At the end of the 10 days, the attendees tearfully walked away with new friends and champions, lifechanging skills, and also practical tools and support such as a certificate of completion, professionally designed CVs, and letters of recommendation which will help them to go job-hunting with confidence.

“l know l will be speaking for everyone in Sea Vista if l said we are very fortunate as youth and young adults of Sea Vista… its not everyday we get organisations like these that come into small communities like ours and help the youth equip them for their future” – Masixole


“I have learnt how to control my emotions, I used to lose control and get angry and now I feel like I can manage it better. I wasn’t confident, I was afraid to talk in front of so many people. I was always afraid to say something wrong and I feltlike people would judge me for what I would say but now I am free, I can talk in front of many people. Before I came here, in my mind, I wanted to work in a place where I can be alone, I was never engaged in teamwork, and always wanted to work by myself but now I am happy to work with so many people and in a team.” – Pumza



We will be conducting PTS courses in Cape Town, Elands Bay and St Francis Bay in 2021 and we look forward to seeing more lives uplifted and transformed…
