About Us

Who are we?

The Nelson Mandela Community Youth Centre (NMCYC) was established in 2003 following a tragic incident in Chatsworth in 2001, where 13 children lost their lives in a nightclub stampede. Nelson Mandela responded to the community’s plea for a safe haven for youth activities by soliciting funds for the centre’s construction. In 2018, the center was renamed after Mandela.

The NMCYC aims to provide a secure environment for youth, fostering young leaders who positively impact society. Run entirely by volunteers, the center offers free programs for over 200 schools, addressing issues like drugs, crime, and unemployment. Sporting codes, awareness programs, and skills development courses are part of its diverse offerings. However, sustaining the center, which operates without charging users, poses a significant challenge, relying on community support for funding. Renovation and refurbishment are urgently needed.
