Connect



What is  Youth Connect

Sisanda Youth Connect Programme focuses on connecting groups of senior school pupils 
as volunteers for primary school children. The children come from various cultures and 
backgrounds with the objective of building relationships and facilitating peer learning.  

How long does it run for?

Connect days run approximately once a month with different institutions.

Benefits

The children are introduced to students from different cultures and backgrounds which enables the breakdown of preconceived prejudices and barriers. On evaluating this programme it is clear that not only the younger children benefit from the mentorship they receive. The older children are gaining leadership skills and the opportunity to practice active citizenry?

Feedback

I thoroughly enjoyed watching my boys break down the barriers of age and culture and experience new things.  Thank you for affording them this opportunity.  Two days later they are still talking about." Teacher, Koeberg Primary School
