74 enrol in Graduate Volunteer Scheme

The Minister of Youth, Sport and Culture, Mr Thapelo Olopeng says 74 participants have enrolled for the Graduate Volunteer Scheme (GVS), and 320 are on the waiting list.

Mr Olopeng said in Parliament that the placement target was 5 000. However, he pointed out that it was not feasible to determine the performance of the scheme at the moment, since the scheme commenced in April this year.

Mr Olopeng added that the scheme was voluntary; therefore the young people could choose not to enroll.“It is not feasible to ascertain the satisfaction of youth engaged in the scheme since no programme evaluation has been undertaken as yet, owing to the fact that the programme just commenced two months ago,” Mr Olopeng said.

The MP for Gaborone North, Mr Haskins Nkaigwa had asked the minister how many youth had enrolled under GVS.Also, he wanted to know government’s target and how the scheme was performing as well as whether the youth engaged in the scheme were satisfied with it. Ends
