“Research by young people for young people”

The YRU@BMR Youth Ambassadors Research Program brings together young people across South Africa to inform and participate in research projects investigating challenges faced by young people. In addition, the program aims to empower young people with basic research knowledge and skills that they can make use of within an educational environment.

The YRU@BMR recently collaborated with two South African organisations, focused on upskilling and empowering the youth to be responsible citizens.

Be in Touch and EDUvelopment both support the YRU@BMR Youth Ambassador Research Program and work together with the YRU@BMR to promote the research program across school communities and young people, to voice their opinions about issues impacting their wellbeing and develop their research knowledge and skills.
