Miss Teen Social Entrepreneur SA is a fresh, new and exciting female youth empowerment and acceleration program for young woman in High School.
This program is for teenage girls who are eager to make a tangible progressive difference in their communities and country with the goal of creating awareness around social responsibility and developing social entrepreneurship skills.
The program is focused on providing a platform where all young women can gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to create their own sustainable businesses while making a positive social impact and have loads of fun while doing so.
“We are working closely with these young women – empowering and mentoring them with key skills they need to succeed in all areas of their lives. Valuable skills that they can then use throughout their lives.” Said Tarryn
“With a program like this, any young woman can feel confident and brave enough to make a difference no matter her circumstances or the feeling that she needs to look a certain way. We are not conforming to stereotypes and we want every young girl to feel that she can achieve anything she sets her mind to do.” Adds Tarryn
These ladies are ambassadors for their schools, communities, South Africa and the rest of the world.
