Impact Development Academy

A segment of the community that sorely needs attention and direction in Eldorado Park is the youth, who by and large are responsible for many of the social ills plaguing the area. Young children and youth are involved in drug abuse, hijacking, rape, burglary, prostitution and alcoholism. The youth lack information and are in need of guidance. We provide this guidance by organizing the youth and directing their energies to be expended in a meaningful way.

What we do to meet youth needs

  • Singing & Dance Groups
  • Dramatics
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Life Skills Workshops
  • Peer education (Reproductive Health, HIV/AIDS classes provided in schools
  • Career Guidance
  • Entrepreneurial Skills Training
  • Sports teams playing in reputable leagues (Soccer, Hockey and Netball)
  • Excursions
  • End user computing
  • Soul Buddyz Clubs

Objective of the Impact Development Academy

  • To develop the children and youth of the area in an attempt to reverse their "at risk" status by giving workshops, sporting codes, dance and drama classes.

The Impact Development Academy programme is run from our Ext. 2 office within Eldorado Park but will extend to the include the beneficiaries of our OVC programme in the informal settlement of Slovo Park. The staff compliment of this project includes three co-ordinators (peer education, arts &culture and sports) with their respective facilitators. A programme for unemployed and out-of-school youth is being developed.

The Impact Development Academy is currently not funded but received assistance from the NLDTF in 2008.
