Dare to stand out mentorship program -D2SO - by:   Open Door Community Foundation

Accredited: Not Accredited
Running from: 2018-02-05 - 2018-12-18

The reason we are a Youth Desk is because we deal directly as young people with other young people who struggle with finding their purpose as we are purpose pushers. The desk encourages and enables young people to participate actively in identifying the causes of youth violence and crime, and to collaborate in creating social crime prevention strategies for their communities. We work with other youth and youth groups to develop projects that are attractive, sustainable and implementable, and to respond to the specific safety needs of their communities. Initiatives Includes o Ongoing leadership and mentorship training for Youth Desk volunteers. o Peer educational support. Ongoing counselling, educational workshops. o Community upliftment programs. One day booth camps. o Youth Summit for change camps and workshops o School holiday programs and excursions. o Motivational talks at school assemblies, parent meetings and community initiatives. o Substance abuse & anti-gangsterism. Youth in our communities do not unnecessarily want to be gangsters and drug users, but they do so because of various factors such as absence of positive role models, broken home, negative peer group pressure and bullying lack of recreational facilities in our our communities, and lack of real interest by authorities in them and communities. We foresee that this project will in a very big way address some of these factors, , but importantly so, to develop also an entrepreneurial spirit amongst them.   more >

Primary After School Reading Programme - by:   Ebenezer Primary

Accredited: Not Accredited
Running from: -

We are aware of current statistics that our learners are lagging behind when it comes to literacy and numeracy skills. The recent PRIL-results indicate that a substantial percentage of our grade 4 learners cannot read or comprehend properly. We are a parallel-medium school (English and Afrikaans) and it is our experience that especially the Afrikaans learners are struggling in their home language. Our systemic results show that our English-speaking learners fair much better in the annual provincial tests. We are trying to embark on a programme in 2018 which will enable us to enhance our learners' reading and numeracy skills in both languages of learning and teaching. Former teachers and other skilled people will help with rolling out of the after school intervention programme. The intervention will be based on the current CAPS curriculum. To be inclusive as possible transport arrangements must be put in place for those learners living further afield from the school.   more >

This programme creates a national framework for connecting children and young people with the theatre best suited to them. The Theatre4Youth site (www.theatre4youth.co.za) serves as a facilitating bridge between theatre and education, making it easy for schools to book excellent productions for their learners, and for theatre companies to tour productions to schools. It moderates the quality of the theatre presented in schools through a participatory feedback system, serves as a space for local artists to develop collaborations with communities as resident artists, and assists theatre companies in making their work more relevant and accessible to schools. There is also a print version of the catalogue available. The Theatre4youth programme mentors and supports artists to take their work to schools or to communicate with schools about their programmes in theatres and at festivals. Through Theatre4Youth, we take children to the theatre and take theatre to children in creches, community halls, schools, theatres and other spaces. (We reached 70 361 beneficiaries in the 2016 financial year.) There are three Theatre4Youth full-time coordinators, each based in a different province: Western Cape, Gauteng and KZN. We also have part-time representatives in other provinces. This dynamic team ensures that ASSITEJ SA knows what is happening in all parts of the country and that we are able to strategize to connect artists with audiences and vice versa.   more >
