About Us

Who We Are

We are a group of young adults who have come together to form a non-profit organisation which provides hands-on insight into the fields that we serve for disadvantaged high school learners

Where We Come From

We were founded on the realization of a lack of career mentorship...




What We do

The team at Ubuhle prides itself on the spirit of Ubuntu – I am because you are. That is why we have embarked on this initiative to be a pillar of support to our mentees. We aim to develop skills and qualities that will remain valuable beyond the duration of the mentorship programme. Our services are summarized as follows:

Professional and personal guidance and mentorship through the structured discipline-specific programme

Provision of support, coaching, inspiration & encouragement

Distribution of relevant resources and material on undergraduate/postgraduate education where applicable

Advice on networking opportunities

Catering to mentee’s questions and concerns on a particular industry

Provision of insight into corporate culture

Our Partners

Transforming tomorrow for our youth

The ArcelorMittal Science Centres are non-profit Centres of Excellence that seek to improve mathematics and science performance at schools, stimulate interest and curiosity in these fields and provide information, knowledge and skills training to teachers, learners, school leavers and the general public in the communities surrounding the company’s operations.

ArcelorMittal South Africa’s core business relies heavily on being able to access skilled people in the scientific, engineering and technological fields. Improving maths and science performance at schools in the communities around the company’s areas of operation provides a sustainable resource for ArcelorMittal South Africa and works towards alleviating the national skills crisis.

The centres expose students to science and technology in a fun and relaxed environment by providing them with classrooms, fully equipped science laboratories, interactive science exhibitions that enhance their thinking skills and curriculum-linked science and mathematics instruction. ArcelorMittal South Africa also involves educators by providing teacher training to enhance overall teaching ability.
