NPO interventions

The after-school programmes are offered through the NPO and are designed to stimulate positive behaviour, increase dedication to education, and contribute to school completion and matric pass rate.

The Minds and Hearts Programme (MHP) for learners in the GET Senior Phase is intended to develop strong self-awareness, self-concept, and leadership skills. At this level, our goal is to support learners in discovering personal dreams and desires.

Brilliant Basics Programme (BBP) for learners in the FET Phase is a practical career coaching programme that enables participants to formulate and work towards realistic high school exit plans.

The LAG programmes and other psychosocial support initiatives are carefully planned to ensure touchpoints with Grades 8 to 12. This way, we can remain a trusted partner and a team of nurturing adults to learners throughout high school.

“Thank you for allowing me to be part of the programme. I have learnt a lot which I didn’t know in life. Keep teaching the South African children, and keep up the good work.”


The Minds and Hearts Programme (MHP) for Grades 8 to 9

Formerly known as The Learner Advancement Programme, the objective of this intervention is to influence in a positive way the Minds, Hearts, Attitudes, and ultimately the Behaviours of learners. During and after the programme\’s connect sessions, learners develop strong self-awareness, self-concept, and leadership skills. Participants learn to identify strengths, threats, and challenges negatively impacting their well-being. There is also a focus on turning challenges into winning opportunities. They are left \”fired-up\” to pursue life dreams and desires.

The programme covers nearly 21 sessions over seven to eight months. It is facilitated for two hours per week, on a weekday afternoon or Saturday.

The Brilliant Basics Programme (BBP) for Grades 10 to 12

BBP is a practical or hands-on Career Coaching Programme intended to help learners identify actual professions or qualifications and perform towards achieving the required subject levels. Participants learn to track current and potential performance needed to achieve the minimum admission requirements required by relevant institutions, including qualifications and other programmes or plans they wish to pursue after Grade 12.

Nearly 18 sessions are presented sequentially from Grade 10 to Grade 12, for two hours per week on a weekday afternoon or Saturday.


Psychosocial support and additional initiatives

  • Individual Life Coaching sessions are accessible to resolve personal, family, school, and environmental challenges that negatively impact the well-being of learners.
  • Individual Career Coaching is also offered to help learners identify career interests, prepare for Grade 11 final examinations, and effectively work towards Grade 12 exit plans and life after high school.
  • Grow partnerships with parents, school-governing bodies, educators, experts, and essential role players, and work collectively to reduce the high school dropout rate.
