The Human Settlements Empowerment Programme in the form of a National Human Settlements Brigade (NHSYB) is a departmental response to the call of up scaling government interventions for youth development. Youth participate in this programme either as professionals, labours, entrepreneurs or beneficiaries.

The Youth Brigades will at the end gain Artisan Development, Employment & Enterprise Development and Professional Development. This Programme is an extension of the Department’s Youth Build Programme and will be rolled out throughout the province.
