During a Task Team meeting that was held on Wednesday, 24 February 2016, Mr Elrico Van Rooyen from Suff Academy (Service Provider appointed to open the Café) walked the representatives of the Department of Social Development, Eden District Municipality and Oudtshoorn Municipality, through the building where the Youth Café will be housed in St John Street. “We are optimistic that the Youth Café will create an environment where the youth of Oudtshoorn will feel safe and developed to their full potential”, Mr Van Rooyen said.

The vast building with its multiple segments and colourful walls that belongs to the Eden District Municipality, is foreseen to be a place that the youth of Oudtshoorn can only benefit from.
