Our Approach

The ‘what’ that directs our work…


The Everyday Heroes and the Leading Ladies Programs are initiatives developed by Ikasi Youth, with the aim to address the lack of safe after-school support and guidance available to High School Youth living in the township areas.

Our mission is to roll out a comprehensive model of after-school academic and social support in townships across Southern Africa.  The purpose of these after-school programs are to provide the mentorship and guidance required help to learners along their journey through education towards gainful employment.

This is done through equipping organisations already working with these youth with the training, tools and resources to become more successful.
