Vision 20/20

This initiative aims to develop confident and responsible, engaged youth leaders and global citizens in our own communities. It is the next step leading on from the Caring4Girls Programme, to provide educational opportunities and develop our youth for a successful and sustainable future.

VISION 20/20 PROGRAMME COMPONENTS:

  • Assistance to Grade 12 Learners with Career Guidance Counselling and NSFAS registration and tertiary institution application.
  • Leadership Workshop for Grade 10 – Grade 12 learners. Pupils and Teachers assist in identifying peer leaders who attend an interactive workshop. The theme of the workshops is to identify and discuss challenges faced in their everyday school environment and to come up with solutions to address these challenges.
  • ‘Second Chance’ post-matriculant support for those leaners who did not pass their matric or need to upgrade their results. This includes promoting matriculants to:
  • REWRITE – taking away the shame and supporting opportunities to redo their matric year.
  • UPGRADE – supporting matriculants to rewrite and upgrade their results in specific subjects so as to enable admission to their tertiary degree of diploma of choice, e.g., Science and Mathematics.
  • REDIRECT – guiding learners that may not be eligible for university education towards alternative career choices and learning opportunities, e.g., TVET College qualifications.
  • Changemakers Virtual Mentorship Hub: Creating opportunities for corporate partner volunteers, to engage virtually with our top Vision 20/20 performers, through mentorship and life-skills coaching and support.
  • The selection criteria will be based on a number of factors not only academic performance. Corporate volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in the selection process.
  • The programme pairs corporate volunteers with one of our students.
  • The objective is to inspire and mentor young minds to take action in their own lives, and to build capacity and encourage skills development and further education.
  • The programme will build Global Citizens and young leaders that will pioneer youth-led social change in their communities.
  • Each participating student will also be expected to ‘pay-it-forward’ by in turn mentoring other students and learners in their own circles and networks.
  • Students will be provided with data and tablets to enable What’s App and Zoom sessions with their mentors.
  • Learners will be asked to keep a Gratitude Diary and tasked with reporting on their sessions on a monthly basis.
  • In-kind support of sanitary pads through the Imbumba Foundation Dis-chem Million Comforts partnership.
