YUVA launches Moral and Civic Education at Sir Abdool Razack Mohamed SSS

The second cohort of YUVA’s ‘Moral and Civic Education’ programme has successfully been launched at the Sir Abdool Razack Mohamed Secondary School on Wednesday. Our team is working with a batch of around 20 ambitious students of Grade 8.

Our young people should realise that Moral and Civic Education is essential to sustain our constitutional democracy. The habits of the mind, as well as “habits of the heart,” the dispositions that inform the democratic ethos, are not inherited. As Alexis de Tocqueville pointed out, each new generation is a new people that must acquire the knowledge, learn the skills, and develop the dispositions or traits of private and public character that undergird a constitutional democracy. Those dispositions must be fostered and nurtured by word, learning, and by the power of example.

YUVA Implemented Team Building and Citizenship Programmes in Zone 2 Secondary Schools

Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative tasks. It is one of the most widely used group-development activities and it can be applied in various places to improve efficiency, for instance, in school classes. Its aim is to build effective working relationships, finding solutions to team problems and aligning around goals.
