07 Aug LEAP 2014
A proud partnership – Tomorrow Trust and LEAP. LEAP (Leadership Excellence. Accelerating Potential) is a non-profit education foundation that annually organizes a youth leadership programme held at UCLA. Each year, hundreds of students travel from across the globe to attend LEAP’s week-long program dedicated to helping young adults uncover the “real-life” skills needed to achieve great success.
Dr Bill Dorfman sponsors Tomorrow Trust students each year to attend the LEAP programme and present on their lives as inspiration to others. Marcus Chabane and Zintle Majeke are students who received the opportunity to attend the programme this year with our CEO Ms Kim Normand-Feinberg. The programme took place from July 27th – August 2nd at the Campus of UCLA, Los Angeles, California.
Our students presented before 480 audiences which was the first for them. It is always an inspirational moment when students tell their stories and tell them with confidence and pride. This year our students continued to inspire people.
LEAP’s goal is to guide young adults in new directions by exposing them to skills that are never taught explicitly in a formal education setting. The programme has workshops that all the students participate in to get the feel of what they are being taught and to experience in a fun format that makes the workshops engaging and exciting for all participants.
We would like to extend a warm thank you to Dr Bill Dorfman for the wonderful opprtunity he has given to our students. Please click on the link to view our tribute
