Knowledge Co-op project #110. Computer club
A non-government organization called "outh Empowerment through School" (Y.E.S) aims to equip learners with employability skills. It offers programmes at the Lavender Hill Secondary School that encourage its over 1000 learners to complete their schooling. YES approached approached the UCT Knowledge Co-op with a project idea for UCT students to assist in the setting up of a media club for learners. The aim of the project was for the IS students to "train the trainers" who would continue running the club in the future. Pascale Henke and Terrina Govender of the Honours Outreach & Community Involvement Programme (HOCIP) based in UCT's Information Systems depart-ment took on the project with great enthusiasm.
