Welcome to Valued Citizens Initiative
Driven by our constitutional values, Valued Citizens Initiative develops the character of citizens through life skills programmes for people to become responsible Valued Citizens determined to lead their lives engaging with our democracy and contributing towards South African economy.
Focused on self-development, citizenship education and leadership principles in public schools from Grade 4 to Grade 12, Valued Citizens Initiative offers a holistic approach to school communities working with learners and School Management Teams, educators, parents, and social workers as the pillars of our society.
One school community at a time, we deliver on the outcomes with a sustainable impact as our life skills programmes change behaviour and attitude.
iVALUE, entrepreneurship skills and experimental learning – a two year investment for growth in a medium term
iVALUE is a two year programme provided to 30 grade 10 learners selected for their zest for entrepreneurship from selected public high schools in Gauteng Province. Personal and collective responsibility, leadership skills and entrepreneurship skills are part of the curriculum we facilitate in 72 hours through creative and experiential learning. This year, iVALUE is currently benefiting 60 learners from two public high schools, namely: Forte Secondary School in Dobsonville and Kwena-Molapo High School in Lanseria, thanks to Strate investing for the third year in iVALUE to ensure that in the medium to long term we create 20% of entrepreneurs which are not just sustaining a family but creating jobs.
