South African Youth challenged to use their power to create positive change. Here’s a few tips to inspire you too.


SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology), together with our very own Brent Lindeque recently went on an amazing positive change journey with the  ‘You have the power to create change’ campaign to show young South Africans that they have great value to offer the country.

For the past few months Brent and a group of young South Africans have embarked on road trip to create positive change, popping in at a variety of charity and school programmes to lend a hand. They have been all around the country visiting Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria, creating change in big and small ways, challenging other young South Africans to actively get involved in their communities.

“We travelled around the country visiting various institutions to show you South Africa how easy it is to do good and give back. We met the most incredible humans along the way and shared good things and positive change.”

“Most of all we had fun, and I want to give a massive shout out to Charlotte, Tintswalo, Thozama, Nhlanhla & SACAP. Thank you for inspiring me & helping me create change!”

From helping feed kids to planting vegetable gardens and even just spending time with the elderly, the camping took everyone on a journey of positive change so we’ve put together an inspirational video to show you how you can make a difference too!

And if you are a matriculant who believes they have the power to create change and is interested in the field of psychology and counselling, SACAP offers a wide range of qualifications including (Higher Certificate, Diploma, BAppSocSci, Bpsych, BPsych Equivalent and BsocSci Honours) and a one-of-a-kind approach to learning: academic rigour and applied skills. Graduating confident “work ready” practitioners is key, which is why SACAP combines an academically rigorous curriculum with a strong emphasis on the ability to apply knowledge through the training of relevant skills.
