Learn to Earn's story

About Learn to Earn

Learn to Earn is a skills development and job creation organisation seeking to develop people, especially unemployed people, socially, economically, emotionally and spiritually.

Our skills development and training centres are based in vibrant Khayelitsha and the seaside town of Hermanus. Here, we endeavour to eradicate unemployment and other legacies of injustice in South Africa. Since 1989 we have trained more than 17 000 unemployed people with market-related skills.

We have seen over 83% of our graduates become economically active, with up to 20% starting their own businesses. Our students have the option of receiving tuition in Bake for Profit, Basic Cashier Skills, Basic Handyman Skills, Basic Office SkillsGraphic Design Bridging Course, Home Management, Sewing, Woodwork, as well as Basic Computers. Our newest training initiative is the Ground UP Academy whose aim is to train and equip unemployed people in becoming entry level Baristas or Coffee Equipment Technicians. All of our courses also include a life skills aspect.
