SOUL CIRCUS PRESENTS 21 Days Youth Empowerment Programme
8-28th October 2019 From Survive to Thrive – Together
BRIGHT and BOLD TO HOPE 4 ALL TO BRIDGE THE GAP AND EMPOWER THE YOUTH TO BECOME A GENERATION OF BOLD ENTREPRENEURS
If ever there was a time to brighten up hearts and minds and enthuse hope – it’s NOW!
There is a growing understanding that socio-economic change will not come about without an empowered, educated society that collaborates with one another for the greater good. Education is not just about going to school and getting a degree. It’s about widening our knowledge and absorbing the truth about life. Our programs are designed to swiftly build empowering environments and upskill our youth with lifeskills, to co-create innovative solutions and bright futures.
Together we link local youth and global heroes of change (we call them Thrivors) – who work together and expand their thrive-abilities. This mentorship is set over 21 days (the ideal time to reprogram the mind into healthy practices). We activate thrive ways to help the youth from previously disadvantaged communities to achieve their dreams and be proactive, creative and committed in developing their futures.
By building hope together, we can support South Africa and the whole world to be the change! Together we can drive peace-loving solutions for all to thrive
