About the Youth VacWork Programme
The Geekulcha VacWork program takes in a number of high scholars to a real and co-creative working environment, get trained and build projects with ICT tools. Youngsters spend their Holidays With The Geeks. The Geekulcha crew and community get to redistribute their skills/knowledge to the young ones.
The Northern Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism seeks to expand and plug the program in rural communities of the Northern Cape. Given that the Bloodhound Supersonic Car (SSC) is coming around the Mier Municipality, the area has been identified as ideal to host the VacWork programme in 2017.
