Helping young people in South Africa’s townships succeed against the odds

This learning brief summarises some of the most important findings from a recent evaluation of IkamvaYouth by a team of economists from Stellenbosch University. IkamvaYouth aims to help disadvantaged students get the best possible matric qualification so that they are eligible for post-school opportunities by offering a mostly volunteer run after-school support and tutoring programme. The researchers set out to identify critical strategic components and success factors in IkamvaYouth’s programme, examine its short and long-term impact and assess its scalability.
