Youth Program

THE PROBLEM: In poor urban communities teenagers have often had less access to quality schooling options as younger children and therefore face a huge skills gap when they grow up, particularly with English, Computers and basic soft skills. This impacts their future education and career opportunities, as well as their sense of confidence and self-worth, making them unable to break out of the cycle of poverty. Currently there is an entire generation of young people that are struggling because of this and they need our support.

OUR SOLUTION: Reality Gives feels very strongly that these young men and women, underserved by their school education simply because of where they were born, should still have the chance to fulfil their potential. Our Youth Program reflects this belief, and whether it’s a young person wanting help finding a job, a teenager wanting to learn English or a woman wanting to improve her standing within her family, our aim is to prove that second chances do exist.

OUR BENEFICIARIES: The youth we support are predominantly first-generation English learners. Their motivations for enrolment usually centre around three main issues: they drop out of school at an early age and struggle to find a job, they want to go to college but their English and self-confidence is not strong enough, they are women taken out of school by their families who want to gain back some form of education to prove to their families that they also have a voice, as well as to assist their young children with their homework.

OUR PROGRAM: The Program provides Level 0 to 3 English Classes (Basic to Intermediate), Computer classes and Special Activities such as Group Discussions, Movie Screenings and development workshops by sector experts. It is designed to equip the student with the abilities they need to follow paths in life which they were previously excluded from.
