LEAD THE WAY
Lead the Way (LTW) , a holiday programme for children (10- 13) and teenagers ( 14 – 18) is designed to engage and challenge them through values-based leadership and soft skills sessions to impact positively on learning and achieving personal excellence.
LEAD THE WAY is a 5-day workshop that empowers teens to understand and harness their full leadership potential. With a focus on values as the foundation for leadership, teens are given an opportunity to examine their core values and beliefs and start their own leadership journey based on a recognition of their identity, strengths and passion all while having the time of their lives.
At the end of the programme teens are challenged to forge their path, find their voices and mature into innovative and principled leaders.

“At the end of the program, I took away one very important lesson amongst others, which is – Know Yourself. The reason why this has stuck to me is because knowing myself in and out lays the foundation for every other lesson I’ve learnt to be useful. When people are asked who they are, they usually reply with their occupation, but an occupation cannot define a person. Knowing yourself allows you to see the bigger picture in every little task you do. It allows you to build self-confidence, choose a career path, build good leadership skills, make friends with the right people and identify what you stand for.”

“My experience at the LTW Summer 2016 programme was nothing less than an educative and insightful one. We were about 30 teenage participants who were lectured on what it means to be a true leader. In addition, we were involved in different activities throughout the course of the programme, which stimulated our leadership instincts and brought us to understand who a true leader is.”
