PROVIDING TOOLS
FOR SUCCESS

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT JOURNEYS.

We strive to provide our Blue Chips with the skills necessary to become proponents of systemic change. While every person is as unique as their dreams and goals, a set of guiding values as well as the ability to think critically are imperative for anyone to lead an independent life.

 

Our ancillary curriculum is designed to complement the South African educational system, with a quarterly focus on societal issues that might come up short in daily school life. Personal Development Journeys (PDJs) are the main tool to ensure our participant's growth throughout the program. Each student's PDJ is comprised of the additional exercises completed within the program and reflects the individual engagement with the resources offered by us (e.g., intercultural mentoring).

Not only are the PDJs essential to implement our curriculum, but also to constantly adapt, revise, and improve it. The PDJs offer us the opportunity to observe the progress of our Blue Chips in real time and tailor the program to their specific needs.

THE FOUR PILLARS OF OUR PROGRAM.

Our educational framework is centered around four substantial pillars, i.e., academic, professional, social, and talent. During the orientation phase of our program (first two years), the pillars are regarded equally important, meaning our participants will be exposed to topics and resources pertaining to all four of them. In the concentration phase, our Blue Chips should be able to focus on the areas that mostly align with their personal interests and help them to pursue their individual goals.
