Dear Young Person,

Good day. Trust you are well. We would like to extend an invite to the Anglican Youth movement based in Cape Town for a television show.

Please see the show Invite:

We would like to invite fifteen members of the Anglican Youth movement (and its affiliated groups) between the ages of 18 and 24 to attend a panel discussion on Saturday 19th October in Cape Town on the topic of Youth in South Africa.

As you probably know, The Big Debate on SABC2 is one of South Africa’s most popular current affairs discussion programs, and the only one to involve an audience of around 200 diverse South Africans on every show.

We are now filming a new series of The Big Debate which will be broadcast on Thursday nights on SABC2 starting in October.  We feel it is time to use this platform to air the concerns of young South Africans and the responses of various leaders to these concerns.

The format of this show will be for leaders (and those who might seek office in the future) to field questions from a diverse group of young South Africans on issues ranging from youth unemployment, to education, social mobility, political leadership and role models and perhaps some issues relating to the generation gap in South Africa.

We, therefore, thought this would be a good opportunity for young people to pose pertinent questions to leaders in the country.

We intend to have on our panel representatives from the ANC, DA, EFF, and AgangSA. This show is scheduled to be recorded at the Monwabisi Recreation Centre in Langa on Saturday 19th October 2013 at 14:00. 

We very much hope that fifteen of your members will be willing and able to join this recording.

With thanks and warm regards, Crystal
