Frequently Asked Questions

Who can join Codebridge Youth?

Anyone between the ages of 14 - 25 for now, but, should you be older, please feel free to enquire on our Facebook page.

Why should I join?

Gain valuable experience in the field of community development and play a part in representing all youth, in your community and your country! You can learn valuable career skills like basic data collection, presentation skills, and public speaking.

What will you be doing once you join Codebridge Youth?

Firstly, you will be yourself! You will be speaking with other youth and finding ways to bring about the change in your community that is most important to you. You will be meeting with organisations, the Municipality, businesses, and other government departments to implement these changes. You will be the face of the youth in your community!

Do I need to have a qualification or a certain kind of experience?

No special qualification or experience needed! All you need is to be keen to play your part in the community, especially youth issues.

Do I need to pay to join?

No, there is no cost to joining a Codebridge community! All are welcome and the only requirement is a passion for your community!

Will I get paid?

No, this is a voluntary process. However, there will be times where you will get assistance with things like data vouchers.

What are Codebridge Community Evenings?

This is a regular online virtual meetup (we are awesome like that!), where all members and other youth get together to discuss everything and anything they think is important that is affecting the youth. Some meetups might also be joined by youths from other Codebridges around South Africa.

How will I know when the Codebridge Youth members meet?

When you join, you can request to join your communities WhatsApp group. Information about these meetings will be sent through that group and on our Facebook page.
