Agape Youth Movement prides itself with one of its own, Mrs Marensia Marensia Khosi-Bhebe who has successfully completed a National Diploma in Sports Management and graduated this Wednesday morning at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).
As an organisation, our vision is to strive for a capacitated and empowered youth who participate in the positive transformation of Africa. We believe in leaders who are educated and qualified to lead the movement to greater heights. As such, Marensia has made education more fashionable in the movement.
The CEO of the organisation Mr Thabang Ramoroka accompanied the family of Marensia to the graduation ceremony.
“Marensia worked so hard to obtain this qualification. In 2017, her June exams clashed with the 3rd Annual Tshwane Youth Leadership Talk, but Marensia decided to dedicate her time to the movement towards the successful execution of what many deem as ‘one of the biggest events of the organisation'”, stated the CEO.
“Even when the event was demanding of her energy and time, she went on to push without giving up and still passed with flying colours. We are proud and feel blessed to have such a great and selfless leader in the organisation”, he added.

On Friday 30 June 2017, we visited Thuto Bohlale Secondary School in Nellmapius (East of Pretoria) to support their Leadership Seminar organised by RCL Learner-Leaders under the leadership of a young and brilliant young lady by the name of Omphile Mogashane who was also part of the 3rd Annual Tshwane Youth Leadership Talk that took place on the 24th of June 2017 at UNISA.
The fully-packed programme featured addresses from various leaders in both the school and community, poetry performances, choral music performances, panel discussion and a keynote address by our CEO – Abuti Rams.
RCL leaders from other schools also were in attendance of this first leadership seminar to give their support for the initiative done by Thuto Bohlale.
One of Agape Youth Movement’s objectives is to provide youth leadership skills and capacitate the youth to engage meaningfully with societal issues and devise their own solutions. In achieving this mandate, we have initiated a programmed called #Moetapele Learner-Leadership in 2015. Part of this programmes is to support learner-leaders with relevant leadership skills and material in order to better represent their peers and also play a pivotal role in the success of the school.
We continue to give structured support to this and many other programmes within schools to capacitate learner-leaders.
A big thank you to the organisers for inviting us to the school and also to the principals for allowing us to work with the learners.
The move is on…
On 6 April 2017, Agape Youth Movement (AYM) and Junior Chamber International (JCI) Tshwane entered into a formal partnership. In alignment with Objective 3 (Provide, with partners, a peer support and mentorship platform for youth-based organisations and institutions. See www.aym.org.za/about) of the organisation and youth entrepreneurship development programmes (see www.aym.org.za/business), AYM officially entered into a three (3) year strategic partnership with JCI Tshwane. The partnership is formed on the following objectives:
- Organisational Awareness (both offline and online)
- Youth Entrepreneurship Programmes
Co-founder and CEO of AYM – Mr Thabang Ramoroka (Abuti Rams), emphasised the importance of creating partnerships for youth development especially in the youth entrepreneurship space. “Having worked with JCI Tshwane informally in 2013 under the leadership of Mr Ndzimeni (former JCI Tshwane President), it is fitting for us to enter into a formal agreement which will benefit both organisations and ultimately increase our collective impact within youth entrepreneurship development. AYM will further connect JCI Tshwane with its other resource and strategic partners within Tshwane. Surely this will strengthen the work of youth development, not only in Tshwane but to the rest of the country.”, he emphasised.
Central to our youth entrepreneurship development programmes’ goals and objectives, our intention is to become an entrepreneurial engine, fueling entrepreneurs and businesses by presenting opportunities to learn, network and leverage off each other’s knowledge, resources and enthusiasm.
AYM and JCI Tshwane will endeavour to inform its membership and stakeholders about either organisation to foster an environment where its stakeholders and companies support and cooperate with both organisations.
