The Learning Trust
The Learning Trust (TLT) and IkamvaYouth have partnered to develop and expand the Collaborative Community Programme (CCP). The CCP is a growing network of after-school programmes in Western Cape and Gauteng, where members are provided with knowledge, skills and resource-sharing opportunities. CCP aims to increase the number of high impact, sustainable tutoring programmes in South Africa.
- Must have an after-school education programme running in Gauteng?
- Do you want to join a community of organisations working together to deliver collective impact: improved academic achievement, excellent matric results and access to post-school opportunities, for learners in township areas?
- Would you like to receive training and support to achieve more impact?
If you are interested in becoming a member of this community you can get involved in one of two ways:
- Implementing Partner: Implementing partners enter into a formal agreement with IkamvaYouth and TLT. In addition to free access to all training and seminars offered, these partners receive hands-on support from the CCP team, to assist with growing and developing their organisations, and providing high quality programmes to their learners. The implementing is eligible to receive a small scale funding from TLT
- Trained Partner: Trained partners are partners of the wider collaborative community implementing after-school programmes. IkamvaYouth provides training to these organisations, with which there is no formal programme implementation agreement. However, it is expected that they apply their training to their after-school academic support programmes and share data to track and monitor collective impact
Who should attend?
The following criteria need to be met by any organisation wanting to receive intensive training, support and programme funding:
- Be a registered NGO/non-profit
- Have been working with a consistent group of 20+ high school learners (for more than one year)
- Have a track-record of some consistent quality service/programme provided for at least one year
- Be located close to the urban centres of Johannesburg or Pretoria
- Have access to a pool of volunteer tutors i.e. proximity to a university
- Have at least one full-time person or a committed founder/co-founder who has been involved in the programme for at least one year and is committed to making the programme work
- Have a collaborative mind-set and dedication to learning, capacity building and team and wider community development
- Align closely with the 5 core values of IkamvaYouth and The Learning Trust’s values of humility, diversity, honesty and a commitment to learning
- Be an emerging community based organisation or a more established organisation looking to improve, grow, or change its tutoring model
The information session will be held on Wednesday, 14 March 2018 at The Norscot Manor Recreation Centre.
