Let the music play! The Johannesburg Youth Orchestra (JYO) was established in Johannesburg in 1998 as an NGO (Section 21 Company). Operating in Soweto, Johannesburg, Evaton and Sebokeng, the JYO responds to the needs of the youth in all communities by providing a centre of musical excellence in orchestral training. It is also a safe and productive meeting place for over 600 young people with musical aspirations. Their Training and Mentorship Programmes equip young adults to find work in the music and education sectors. Our sponsorship helps promote social, personal and artistic growth as well as the creation of employment opportunities.
