The Hope Scholars programme seeks to address unsatisfactory achievement in mathematics, science and English literacy in under-resourced South African schools. SAEP takes grade eight and nine learners through a two-year process of academic and personal development to prepare them for high school success and assists them to excel in later grades by focusing on maths, science and English literacy.
The project provides:
• Mathematics, science and English after-school tutoring, which is delivered by full-time staff, volunteers and professional tutors.
• Specialised English literacy and reading sessions that are designed to foster critical thinking and analytical skills, which are essential for learners' success in other subjects.
• Life skills and career guidance: along with personal development sessions, these are crucial to the children’s progress and help to reduce dropout rates later on.
• Academic and enrichment camps and outings allow learners to spend time outdoors and engage in activities that stimulate an interest in maths and science.
• Psycho-social support is offered to address non-academic barriers to learning through home visits, parent meetings and access to a social worker.
The project aims to equip learners with the academic and life skills needed to thrive in Grades 10 to 12 and achieve strong academic results.
