Our new school semester starts this week! Every September, Innovation Youth registers youth aged 16-24 who have dropped out of high school and want a second chance at completing their studies.
Returning students face enormous challenges: sometimes, it’s been a while since they’ve studied. They also have challenges in their personal lives such a financial difficulties or family stress that can slow down their progress. At Innovation Youth, we make it our mission to accompany them through these challenges and equip them for higher learning. We do this through regular meetings with our intervention worker, setting individual objectives, one-on-one mentorship and hands on learning workshops such cooking and art. We want each of our students to understand the importance of gaining life skills and self-esteem- these are essential contributors to their success.
Welcome back students, and congratulations for taking this huge step forward!
