What gets Zwelakhe Mpofu- an active volunteer from Boipatong, Johannesburg- out of bed every morning, is his passion for community development. He dreams of grooming future leaders from less privileged communities which has spurred his advocacy in family stability and ensuring the interest of children & youth are protected. Zwelakhe was nominated for a Youth in Business Award in the charitable sector for the Sedibeng region under the Motsepe Foundation Development Forum Committee. Zwelakhe holds a Paralegal Qualification from Boston Business College, a child care qualification from North-west University, a Leadership qualification from Health and Social Development, a certificate in Small Business Compliance from the South African Revenue Services and a certificate in Sporting and Event Management. He is currently pursuing his National Diploma in Law (Paralegal Studies) at the University of Johannesburg. Being involved in various roles has enabled Zwelakhe to broaden the horizons of his leadership capability. At the North-West University, Zwelakhe was selected as the best academically performing student in a Child Care course- in which he was the only male in a class of 302 students. He has also volunteered at Legal Aid SA (Vereeniging) assisting public with legal advice. Zwelakhe loves community work and with his vast experience and understanding of the NGO sector, he started the Learn-to–Lead Foundation which helps to empower the Boipatong community at large. Some of the activities offered at Learn-to-Lead include after school support classes in life skills, academic excellence as well as volunteering. At the ASRI Future Leaders Program, Zwelakhe hopes to network with fellow change- makers and increase his scope on the management of Learn-to-Lead.
