Young Alumni Programme (YAP)
Join us as we unpack everyday topics in ‘Adulting 101’ – from how to file your tax return to how to network meaningfully. The ‘How to’ series is presented by our very own alumni. There is no need to go it alone. Connect, engage, and be inspired to achieve even more. A new episode is released on Maties Connect the last Thursday of every month. Each month an alumnus will give tips and tricks on how to grow professionally, financially, and personally. In the first episode, Bobby Wessels – one of our very own alumnus – shares important tips on how to do your taxes. Get your pens and notebooks ready as you listen to our first event.
