Our Vision expands further than supporting women that are currently in the mainstream economy. We have launched Vision4 Young Women Mentorship Program where we support girls from high schools and tertiary institutions with life skills and mentorship to prepare them for the business world. We launched the program in 2012 by piloting high 14 high schools from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, and our plan is to expand the program to reach the Eastern Cape Schools and beyond.
MISSION OF THE PROGRAM IS..
• To develop and encourage girls to be workplace ready and become leaders in their careers of choice
• To foster and develop the girls entrepreneurial acumen
• To communicate information related to the richness and breadth of the girl’s lives concerns and possibilities using available knowledge and skills
TO ACHIEVE OUR MISSION
We organise life skills camps and workshops where experts from various backgrounds share knowledge and skills with the selected girls. We make use of mentors to meet and support the learners on a monthly basis. We are also assisted by peer helpers or “buddies” who are university students to coach the learners.
PHASES OF THE PROGRAM
The program is administered in the following phases:
