Magata Kola (30) from Zebediela village in Limpopo and currently based in Johannesburg South, joined the Youth Health African internship programme in 2020. During his internship, Magata was involved in the training team as a facilitator assisting with inhouse training and ensuring that new Youth Health Africa interns received training and development ahead of commencing their learnerships.
The valuable skills that he learned during his internship include communication and interpersonal skills which he believes are key elements to learn within any working environment. Magata also gained experience and training in conducting facilitation sessions as well as creating and conducting presentations. Since completing his internship with YHA, Magata has grown and improved immensely within the organisation. As a recently appointed Youth officer within the YHA training and development team, he was awarded an assessor certificate and is currently awaiting accreditation.
