Career Guidance and holiday jobs/ work experience for Grade 11 and 12:Support grade 11-12 with career guidance and, where possible, offer work experience and holiday jobs for those in grade 11 and above to teach them lifeskills and enable them the dignity of earning money.
Studies and training:We partner with organisations such as the YMCA who offers courses for matriculants often leading to employment at large retailers such as Mr Price, Spar and The Hub. We are looking to grow linkages into other courses and organsations such as Harrambee, as well as donations to sponsor these courses and the transport costs involved. Sponsorship to obtain a drivers' license is also important for some employment opportunities.
Bursaries:We have had 6 students on bursaries for tertiary studies thus far. We are needing sponsorship for next year.
Employment:Through long-standing relationships, we can guarantee the integrity and values of those Special Stars we recommend for jobs. We are always looking for companies needing basic unskilled labour to partner with us. Many of our Special Stars have been passed unwanted from one relative to another- there is an opportunity to sow hope for the future into their lives.
