Our ‘hands-up for reaching potential(HURP) projects empowers young people in our local communities to realize their full potential. In line with the National Youth Policy of 2020, the HURP project is a youth-targeted intervention which are needed to enable young South Africans to actively participate and engage in society and the economy.


Retail School of Excellence have an area of expertise that’s of value to others and firmly believe in the importance of giving back to our community.

Our common vision is communities where all youth thrive. Yet, youth everywhere face issues threatening their development and wellbeing, including poverty, inadequate education, abuse, delinquency, violence, inadequate access to services, adolescent pregnancy, and substance abuse. Youth violence has also taken a toll on society. The human price we pay for these problems is insurmountable, but these problems are also a fiscal burden to our society. The development of healthy youth is a goal that communities must embrace. The purpose of this project is to be a support to the youth in those communities.

HURP intends to bring together youth to deepen their leadership, entrepreneurship and knowledge and foster active youth participation in good governance processes within the Western Cape region. The outcomes of the HURP projects will be to ensure a positive customer experience in a Wholesale and Retail business unit and explain how employees can influence the objectives of a Wholesale and Retail (W&R) business unit.
