We train Prevention Workers to empower learners to stand up against abuse in schools and we train learners over 16 years of age as Peer Trainers to teach their mates and juniors as older brothers and sisters in After School Clubs under the supervision and support of Life Orientation teachers and Prevention Workers.
Mentoring and supervision is done at regular camps, where learners' experiences and opinions are discussed, recorded and incorporated so as to customise our programme to the specific needs of each school within the surrounding community.
We give school staff and parent workshops and victim support by way of liaison with social and health services and SAPS.
Our programme is curriculum aligned and is guided by research indicators and outcomes of other programmes which incentivise learners to continue with their education through development of confidence and leadership skills. Older learners at risk of exclusion are particularly welcome in our programme, for we work with their teachers to identify them and give them support to re-establish self-esteem through our hands-on programme, to show off their skills and help others.
Youth Involvement is a duty of the educational institutions under our country's National Development Plan for Education. We help educators achieve this, thus feeding into policy.
