Andy’s been hard at work since his return to Cape Town mid-February getting the Innovation Hub project ready for its first key milestone: In-taking its first 30 young people from the Gugulethu & Philippi townships to be part of the first Proof of Concept training program. The Intake process will commence the final week of May and will provide detailed personalized assessments of each person’s strengths aptitudes and personality. This will allow us to customize a program of leadership and identity, soft skills and Digital Marketing skills training to meet their learning needs. Graduating our first cohort of students is still a ways off (early 2020) but we are excited for the progress we are making towards being able to launch the first phase of training with these 30 young people in mid-July.
In this photo Andy and Jonathan (a fellow team member) were recently hosting a workshop with a missions group visiting from Norway. The workshop was focused on gathering the missions team’s input into how we design the Digital Marketing and Soft Skills training curriculum.
