  • Columba Leadership

  • Our goal is to ensure that hundreds of thousands of young people become alive to their potential and recognize their ability to lead change in their own lives, their schools and communities. We also aim to ensure that high schools in South Africa become aware that learners working in partnership with adults can do much to strengthen schools through effective social action.¬†Our purpose is to transform the culture of schools to change the trajectory of youth. We work in close association with the Department of Education, building the capacity of high schools, serving economically disadvantaged communities to embed our values-based leadership model.

  • The Learner Advancement Group (LAG)

  • Our aim is to support learners by providing the necessary skills required to define life and career goals, enabling them to formulate high school exit plans before reaching grade twelve. Learners in Grade 8 receive an exciting psychosocial support programme called Minds and Hearts that leaves them fired up to remain committed to school. We then offer a Career Coaching programme for Grades 10 to 12. We believe that by Grade 12, every learner must have a clearly defined exit strategy. By providing the proper support at the right age and school level, we aim to transform the way learners think and feel about achieving dreams and life desires.

  • The Bookery

  • We create and support libraries in under-resourced schools. We set up the space and employ a young person in the community as a library assistant (LA) to maintain and facilitate the library. We then continue to provide literacy support through activities, competitions, site visits, LA meetings and training workshops. Our mission is to create a culture of reading. We believe that every child deserves to experience the power and joy of reading and the opportunity to become informed, active citizens.
