ADOPT A LEARNER
“Shaping Leaders of the Future”
The Adopt A Learner initiative stands for the emancipation, empowerment and development of young leaders at high school level. Through the initiative, learners will be equipped with tools to help them map out their future. The initiative focuses on Academic Excellence, Personal Development, Self-Mastery, Exposure to career guidance, information seminars on scholarships, internships, bursaries Managing family dynamics, peer pressure, dealing with substance abuse (wellness) and help them to make informed life decisions about their future. This initiative is aimed at helping the youth to enable and allow them to experiment and consciously embrace their intelligence.
Each term we will have a “gathering” in which one of the former students/teacher, motivational speaker will educate the current students on their area of expertise - that will be the major theme for that month.
Host workshops in which we prepare students for life balance by exposing them to a variety of activities each with valuable skills to be learnt, this will also create a platform through which the students support each other there by sharing acquired skills and valuable life lessons promoting the spirit of an “open discussion/understanding” amongst them.
In support of this youth empowerment we will also host “retreat sessions”, through which we’ll encourage boys and girls to support one another, encouraging and promoting cooperation within the group, “unity in life”.
Once a year - host a get together with the hopes of attracting sponsors. During this weekend we hope to round up everything that has been learnt throughout the year and instill the ethos of togetherness.
