Junior Leaders Programme
The Care2Run Junior Leaders Programme (JLP) is a pioneering, long-term intervention programme that is geared towards making young people more active, sociable and employable.
The sessions seek to build the confidence of participants and instigate substantive behavioural changes.
The JLP is divided into three distinct phases.
JLP 1 is a structured five-week programme. Upon successful completion of JLP 1, participants earn a Junior Coach badge which entitles them to coach others.
JLP 2, the next phase, also lasts five weeks and sees Junior Coaches hone their leadership, coaching, facilitation and public speaking skills by mentoring and coaching other young people. The focus in this part of the programme is on sustainability and empowerment by introducing among others, entrepreneurial as well as design thinking training.
The final phase, JLP 3, witnesses further enhancement of the skills acquired in JLP 2, with a focus on improving participants’ business and customer management presentations during the final five weeks.
What Our Volunteers Say
Krishantini, a lawyer by profession, got involved with Care2Run just before we began our pioneer JLP programme in March 2018.
“Despite only being involved for a short period of time, I have successfully mentored a bunch of amazing kids to become leaders not only amongst their peers and have seen them step out of their comfort zone. With faith, patience and true perseverance, I’ve seen how these kids have blossomed into wonderful individuals and it gives me sheer joy to be part of their success stories.”
