Who are MOT-SA

MOT South Africa is a registered and leading public benefit and non-profit organisation, specialising in life-skills development among the youth. MOT South Africa is also a Services Seta accredited training provider that hosts training workshops for educators, youth and volunteers for the implementation of the MOT life-skills programmes at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges, high schools and community organisations.

MOT SA Youth

The MOT training programmes equip young people with the tools and strengthen their awareness and courage to manage peer pressure, to believe in themselves and to take responsibility for their own lives and future. MOT focuses strongly on the development of self-confidence, sound values, positive attitude and behaviour, self-leadership and to respect and care for others. Through the MOT programmes, the youth is empowered with courage, resilience and life skills to make good life choices for them to develop to their full potential and become leaders and positive role models in their communities. With its philosophy, programmes and methodology, MOT achieves significant and long-term change in individuals and in the classroom. MOT South Africa partners with high schools, TVET colleges and communities to achieve its vision of creating a warmer and safer society.

We may not be able to shape the future for our youth, but as South Africans, we can strengthen and empower the youth to be able to handle any obstacles that they may encounter. With the help of the funds raised through the MySchool programme, MOT SA can continue to annually train teachers, lecturers and peer educators to facilitate the life-skills programmes with the youth. 

Young MOTivators With MJ Li and Janice

During May 2017, MOT SA hosted youth leadership and life-skills training camps for 93 Western Cape TVET college students and high schools learners, over two consecutive weekends, at Bridges Academy in Franschhoek. The annual Young MOTivators' camps are designed to inspire, motivate and empower the youth with various skills, including; self-awareness, relationship-building, strengthening courage, team building, leadership skills and presentation techniques. 

Over the course of the three days, our youth enjoyed motivational talks presented by: Director for Institutional Management and Governance at the Western Cape Education Department, Mr Makhonsandile Ndzuzo; MOT SA Chairperson, Professor Eltie Links; Chief Director at the DHET Regional Office and MOT SA Board Member, Zozo Siyengo; MOT Brand Ambassadors, International Kung Fu/TaiChi Champion, MJ Li  and local singer and songwriter, Janice. 

By working proactively with the students and learners, the young MOTivators are trainined and equipped with the knowledge and tools to be culture-builders, active citizens and youth leaders at their colleges and high schools and in their communities.
