Many teenagers experience issues where guidance from adults is required. From experience we have gained by working with youth groups for many years, we know that many teenagers do not receive guidance from their parents, whilst many teenagers also do not have the “open” relationship with their parents and related adults, which encourage them to seek those peers’ guidance. MobieG was founded in July 2010 beginning as a 6 month pilot study.
The first helpline MobieG launched is called the N.P.C. “Livejam”. The Life Helpline is very successful, as young people suddenly had anonymous, free help with any kind of life crises. This helpline has already had more than 80 000 young people online, asking for help.
Unemployment in South Africa, and the alarmingly high Secondary school dropout rate (from 1.4 million grade 9’s in South Africa, only 600 000 reach gr 12) also prompted us to have a look at study and career guidance. Investec financed a pilot project of 18 months through Brainwave Careers N.P.C. to develop a career quiz and another helpline on MobieG. Brainwave Careers Helpline launched in March 2012. The Quiz is a big hit with young people – more than 46 500 have already completed the quiz by April 2013. The career helpline is currently sponsored by Investec Bank.
During 2012 MobieG created its own portal on MXIT. It launched the portal in October 2012 and it has more than 120 000 registered users.
