With a focus on leadership, entrepreneurship, innovation, and social impact, the summit aims to equip Johannesburg’s future leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary for success.

“The #MadeInJozi Youth Summit coincides with South Africa’s Youth Month,” said Siphokazi Duma, Senior Monitoring and Evaluation Officer for the City. “We aim to empower young people to succeed and contribute meaningfully to Joburg’s future. Join us as we celebrate the power and potential of Joburg’s youth.”
