Glenwood boys have been actively involved with the Durban Youth Council the past year. The grade 11 reps in 2020 did a great job and Glenwood was awarded 4th best school.
Founded in 1966, the DYC is an apolitical, areligious NPO, composed of grade 11 learners from surrounding schools that aim to better their community! The DYC provides a platform for learners to develop their leadership qualities and become a team player, through actively managing and participating in community based projects. In doing so, councillors develop an awareness of the community and uplift and empower the lives of many.
“2020 Was a challenging year for the world, our country and us as individuals. We saw the world as we know it completely change, and as a nation we had to adjust and adapt to the changing times. 2020 brought many challenging moments, hardships and heartache, however, it also brought families closer, made us stop and take note of what’s important and to be thankful for the smallest things. As a community based leadership enabled organisation we had to adapt, rethink and re-strategize how we do the work we do. At DYC, we are still determined to ensure that the voice of our youth are heard and we still provide a safe platform to serve and learn, in spite of a global pandemic. This will again be our modus operandi in 2021 and beyond. In spite of meetings and events being cancelled and not being able to engage directly with our leaders needs to be changed to team, we were able to bring in funds and still make communities dreams come true in 2020. Please see attached a brief progress report of what DYC achieved in 2020”. – Rasigan Naidoo
