When you are at the daunting crossroads of making decisions that affect your future, you can find yourself facing a world full of endless opportunities. You want to do something that will best suit you, and will help you to succeed and reach your full potential. Deciding on a career path is one of the most important, yet challenging decisions every young adult faces. Once they leave school, they don’t know what their next steps are:

“What am I interested in? What do I want to study? What do I want to become? And, where do I start?”

Why choose this course?

The Young Minds Programme is specifically designed to equip school-leavers and young adults with the necessary skills, knowledge, tools, and mindset to be better prepared for the next chapter in their lives – the world of study and work, as well as life in general. This is achieved by helping them define their goals, strengths, and direction before enrolling in tertiary courses / degrees, embarking on a fixed career path, as well as building the career and life of their dreams.

Participants learn about, among other core themes, Business Management, Entrepreneurial Thinking, and Personal Mastery, and gain access to life coaches and job shadowing guidance, as well as undergo psychometric testing. It is a truly personalised learning experience structured to help students design the career and life they desire and deserve – and kickstart their professional journey with the utmost confidence. 

Over the course of 9 months, participants will discover:

  • Who you are and what you want to achieve in life.
  • The dynamics of the modern economic environment.
  • The essence of entrepreneurial thinking and behaviour.
  • To capitalise on opportunities to create wealth for yourself.
  • The principles of managing a small to medium business.
  • Explore the practicalities of the real world of work.
  • Report back on your experience in group presentations.
  • Develop you presentation skills and confidence.
  • Present a life plan and comprehensive business plan.

What our learning partners had to say

The programme is holistic, I would say, because I developed every part of myself

The course helped me to set out small goals towards my dreams

Tsebo Koena

It's all about personal development - not only the business subjects. You get to develop yourself as a person and (discover) how to react in certain situations - you really get to know what you're good at; but even better, what you are NOT good at!
