Mentoring of at risk Grade 11 students regarding study & life skills, time management, goal setting
Between 20 and 30 at risk grade 11 students are chosen to go through an 11 week program teaching them life skills, time management, goal setting, career planning, study skills etc. Mentors from Rotary & the community volunteer their time to mentor on a one on one basis using a structured program and manual which resonates with the students. At the end of their Matric students the 3 students that have improved the most are awarded with a cash amount paid directly to the tertiary institution they are enrolled in. This year we are launching a pilot program in the informal settlement of Daveyton to help at risk students identified by the community centre. Over the past 10 years the Strive program has enabled learners to take up leadership roles at school, pass matric and attend and complete university. The Strive learners have improved in all aspects of their lives and go on to make invaluable contributions to their communities and society in general.
