Engage the best young talent

The Knowledge Expo is a 3-month journey covering career guidance, education, employment, and entrepreneurship – hosted by The Knowledge Trust, entirely on WhatsApp. 

Young people will will be invited to access information, advice and opportunities from South African and Nigerian educators, training providers, employers, and funders.

4-29 October


Young people were given access to content to help them understand the paths available to them, and to get guidance from industry experts on key topics such as mental health, time management, and professional communication.



Participants were invited to engage with a network of 25 partners across 6 faculties so they could learn about their offerings, leave their details and apply for over R20m in bursaries.
