The Youth Development Unit is located within the eMalahleni Local Municipality which is situated on Corner Arras and Nelson Mandela Drive at Emalahleni Civic Centre (main building) on the 2ND floor, within the office of the Municipal Manager.
Council prioritized the establishment of the Youth Development & Management Unit because it realized that holistic development of any society relies heavily on the potential of its youth. The Youth plays a pivotal role in progressive development or decline of any community; therefore; in order to ensure that the matters that affect the youth are taken into consideration during strategic planning and implementation of municipal programmes, this unit was created in 2006. Since its establishment, it has not been adequately staffed due to municipal financial constraints, but a new structure was adopted and further reviewed in 2016/17, taking into account the development needs and the spatial dispensation of the youth.
