The Metropolitan, a company celebrating its 125th anniversary, has launched a program aimed at empowering young people in KwaZulu-Natal called Metropolitan Collective Shapers, under the slogan “we rise together”. The program was officially launched today in The Secret Garden Pietermaritzburg.

According to Metropolitan’s CEO, Peter Tshiguvho, the program aims to support 50 young people in the agriculture industry and entrepreneurship.

“In South Africa, we have a problem of high unemployment among young people, which is a threat to our future. We believe that these young people are the future of our country, and we need to support them to succeed. We will provide them with resources, mentorship, and training to help them grow their businesses.”

Tshiguvho added that the program will provide holistic support to young people, including life skills training, business development, and mentorship. He emphasized the importance of investing in young people to secure the future of the country. Interested applicants can apply on the Metropolitan website:
