  3. Make available to youths that want to go on to start a business, business planning and management guidelines and skills through the Become A Successful Owner Manager Course (BSOM)

  8. Target Beneficiaries: Youths in the age range of 18 to 30 years.

For the joint venture partners especially Shell, there are Public Relations, media and brand opportunities aimed at demonstrating commitment to local economic development.

LiveWIRE can also provide good opportunities for Shell Employee Volunteering programmes.
