WCRP and info4africa also collaborate and host quarterly Youth Forums, which bring together youth between the ages of 12 and 18, from schools across the economic, cultural and social spectrum in KwaZulu-Natal. The Youth Forum programme actively engages youth, as the future leaders of South Africa, through four half-day workshops each year. The workshops are theme based, drawing from the Millennium Development Goals and the National Strategic Plan for HIV, AIDS and TB for South Africa (NSP), as well as from topical events such as Human Rights Day, Peace Day and Heritage Day. A well-informed speaker drawn from government, academia or the health and welfare practitioner community anchors each workshop within the Youth Forum series. Attendees are encouraged to take projects back into their schools and share the results of these initiatives at the following Youth Forum. Annually they have an awards ceremony that recognizes effort and outstanding achievements within the Youth Programme. Highlights of the 2012 Youth Forum programme included a visit to the KZNSA Gallery to view an international activist exhibition on HIV and treatment and an International Peace Day Celebration which showcased dramatic and creative appeals from learners highlighting the need for world peace.
