Welcome To The Youth ICT Council

At Youth ICT Council, we’re ready for something better. The Youth ICT Council is the first of its kind in South Africa. It has been established for assisting in the transformation of the ICT sector to directly reflect the demographics of the country, which is largely youth. As the global economy adopts digital and ICT’s, we want to position South Africa as a global player through the full participation of young ICT-focused entrepreneurs, professionals, and academia.  Our Council is made up of talented young people in the digital space and civil society. As the Youth ICT Council we aim to be the voice of young people  involved in the ICT sector by providing various platforms, and assisting the South African government in drafting ICT policies and strategies that are inclusive of the youth.
