South African Youth Leaders Network (SAYLN) believes that the youth are critical, and often neglected, stakeholders in the future of a post-Apartheid society.
Youth therefore have a key role to play in transforming South Africa into the kind of society it could become: one in which people are valued as human beings, welcomed in all their diversity and allowed to play a contributing role in working towards a vision of a better future for themselves and their fellow citizens.
Young people need to be supported to begin to act for themselves and take responsibility for their own lives.
SAYLN envisions and works towards a South African society where we see diversity not as a threat, but value, accept and embrace it as a positive potential.
SAYLN exists to promote social cohesion amongst people living in South Africa by implementing innovative Managing Diversity Programmes with a focus on Youth.
