Welcome to Valued Citizens Initiative
Valued Citizens Initiative is a non-governmental organisation founded in 2001 to answer the request of the Gauteng Department of Education to develop citizenship education in public schools.
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.
