We are the National Youth Development Outreach.
In 1990 Billy Paulson established a Community Development Organization called “Youth Development Outreach” (YDO). With a mission to train, teach and develop young people and taking a firm stand against the evils of society influencing the youth. This would be accomplished through unconditional acceptance.
Now, years later, the organization still exists known as National Youth Development Outreach (NYDO) growing and develop over time with the current mission to shape the future of South African by developing new skills through training, education and development programmes for children, youth, their families and their mentor towards creating opportunities to achieve their fullest potential in life.
Unemployment falls harshly on young South Africans and becomes part of the evils of society influencing the youth. The young people in the townships of Eersterust, Mamelodi, Nellmapius, Cullinan and Bronkhorstspruit are faced with life issues discouraging them to dream, set goals and reach their full potential.
National Youth Development Outreach (NYDO) provides training, education and development programmes to children, youth and their families through preventative and restorative initiatives within communities.
NYDO has a good track record and proven sustainability since 1995 as a registered NPC, in delivering development services to at-risk youths and communities: those in need for psychosocial and potential development assistance. The founder, Mr. Billy Paulson and hardworking pioneers in the community left a memorable heritage and legacy in the community for the community.
NYDO has a Recreation and Training Facility in Eersterust next to Mamelodi in Tshwane. This facility is accessible to children and young people between 10 -28 years.
NYDO is shaping the future of South Africa by developing new skills through training, education and development programs for children, youth, their families and their mentors towards creating opportunities to achieve their fullest potential in life. NYDO addresses life- and skills knowledge barriers, conducts behavioural and life orientation sessions as well as presents skills level and career assessment. Equipping youth at risk to effectively overcome their fears, self-doubt, low self-esteem and to develop self-management skills to productively deal with the challenges of everyday life preventing crime within the community.
In providing the professional services of life skills, development and diversion sessions, NYDO needs to appoint and make use of registered Social Service Practitioners, Art Practitioner Facilitators and Training Facilitators.
