On Friday 30 June 2017, we visited Thuto Bohlale Secondary School in Nellmapius (East of Pretoria) to support their Leadership Seminar organised by RCL Learner-Leaders under the leadership of a young and brilliant young lady by the name of Omphile Mogashane who was also part of the 3rd Annual Tshwane Youth Leadership Talk that took place on the 24th of June 2017 at UNISA.
The fully-packed programme featured addresses from various leaders in both the school and community, poetry performances, choral music performances, panel discussion and a keynote address by our CEO – Abuti Rams.
RCL leaders from other schools also were in attendance of this first leadership seminar to give their support for the initiative done by Thuto Bohlale.
One of Agape Youth Movement’s objectives is to provide youth leadership skills and capacitate the youth to engage meaningfully with societal issues and devise their own solutions. In achieving this mandate, we have initiated a programmed called #Moetapele Learner-Leadership in 2015. Part of this programmes is to support learner-leaders with relevant leadership skills and material in order to better represent their peers and also play a pivotal role in the success of the school.
We continue to give structured support to this and many other programmes within schools to capacitate learner-leaders.
A big thank you to the organisers for inviting us to the school and also to the principals for allowing us to work with the learners.
The move is on…
