The Year Beyond Programme 2018 has begun once again at Sophakama Primary School.
We have 5 new volunteers who have been selected by Action Volunteers Africa (AVA) and Rogz Academy Books and Beyond.
The volunteers are between the ages of 18–25, with a Grade 12 certificate and good English and Maths results. They will be mentoring Grades 1–4 learners in these subjects in the afternoon space every day.
The volunteers start the year off with a week’s camp. Here, they enjoy getting to know themselves better and interacting with the other 100 volunteers selected for the programme.
Workshops are run, which include, among many, professionalism, discipline, breaking beliefs, art and exercise. The volunteers then have a week’s intensive Maths and English Boot Camp run by AVA.
Our 5 newbies were warmly welcomed by all the staff at Sophakama on Monday. We look forward to their year with us.
