The Value of sound leadership!

 

This month we would like to shine the spotlight and acknowledge our Acting CEO of IkamvaYouth, Ntuthu Mazwana. Passionate about education and social cohesion, Ntuthu lives by three values; purpose in all her life pursuits, passion in everything she does and impact, she's always striving to have a positive and long-lasting impact on those around her.

Thank you for your always demonstrating positive leadership and for being the inspiration that you are Ntuthu!

Chairman of our Board since 2019. Putu has a long history of community development involvement, stretching back to his early high school days and continuing until now. He has held executive and non-executive leadership positions in community development organisations and is focused on African development. This month we would like to acknowledge the Chairman of our board and express our gratitude for his leadership and support.

 

­2023 Autumn School

IkamvaYouth hosted a five-day Autumn Holiday Programme across all of our branches during the March school holidays. The programme included life skills and career guidance workshops which included self-awareness, study skills, pre-matric induction and exciting academic games such as subject trivia, debating and general knowledge. 

 

­Women in Engineering Programme

Women in Engineering (GirlEng) accepted sixteen of our female learners from our Diepsloot Branch who showed an interest in pursuing a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to take part in the GirlEng Technovation Camp that took place from the 25th to 28th March. Learners were taught how to code, build and programme robots as well as gain valuable insights about future technologies. All while developing an engineering solution to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

Thank you to WomEng for demonstrating your dedication and support for educational development in South Africa. We appreciate your support!  

 

Matrics visit to Diplomics Labs

Grade 12 Life Science learners from our Western Cape branches visited the DIPLOMICS labs during the holiday programme to learn more about Life Sciences from a Scientist’s perspective. The learners got the opportunity to extract DNA from the strawberries and bananas and were also given a tour of the facility and the laboratories.

Thank you to Diplomics for taking the time to impart some knowledge with our learners and providing them with an insight into the world of DNA. We appreciate your investment in young people.

 

­ Matric Week

As we concluded term 1, our team hosted our annual Matric Week programme across our branches, a holiday programme for our Class of 2023. This week-long programme consisted of numerous interactive tutoring sessions, career guidance workshops as well as dedicated time spent helping our matrics improve their computer literacy skills.

 

­Graduation Season

It’s graduation season! We are celebrating the graduations of our alumni and tutors from the Western Cape who have recently completed their degrees from UCT and CPUT. A big congratulations to some of our recent graduates.

We wish you all the best with your journey ahead!

 

­Community Outreach

Our Chesterville team concluded a successful learner recruitment drive at Bonela Secondary School in Chesterville. Learner recruitment drives are a crucial component to our outreach programme as it solidifies our relationships with communities and ensures that we reach learners in need of academic support and career guidance.
