Our brand new website launched in April. Find out who we are, what we do, how you can be the difference, and catch up on our upcoming events and read up on our leadership news. Thank you to the team at OFyt for their hard work in bringing this site to life.
The renovations at our new offices were completed. We love our new, very creative and collaborative work space that allows us to provide a quiet study space for our scholars, one-on-one scholar sessions, new intake assessments, leadership workshops, and training and scholar functions. None of this would have been possible without the incredible generosity of our sponsors and the dedication of the individuals who made this space a possibility: Alex Hamilton Art Studio, Decofurn Factory Shop, Digigraphix,
- Candice Pearson, our new Registered Councillor, joined our multi-disciplinary Scholar Support Unit in February and will be overseeing our Grade 12s. We are also looking forward to welcoming Elmarie Bessinger, our new Industrial Psychologist to the team in May.
Thank you to all our event participants, sponsors and partners, and to our scholars for all their hard work, passion, commitment and dedication to creating a brighter future for South Africa. You made the difference, and whilst you read the news below, feel proud that you are the reason why we can share this with you.
