What Makes Blackboard
Through Creativity: We advocate for as many young people in this generation to become creative and actively participate in some form of creative stimulation in order to make South Africa a globally competitive destination. Our programmes and activities must adequately stimulate creative thinking and enterprising of young people in the fight against poverty and joblessness.Read more
Through Engagement: We organize intentional workshops, events and mentorship opportunities targeting specific sub-groups at a time using the key pillars of our operations. We want Young people to thoughtfully and meaningfully engage current affairs and day-to-day issues by unpacking some of the critically emerging ideas that have a significant impact on our country. We want to invest in ideas, innovations, creations and visions that will set young leaders apart as an African generation.Read more
Through Leadership: We want to inspire Young Africans to become the Top Leaders, CEOs, Politicians, Producers, Directors, Managers and Key Influencers in the 21st Century. The Blackboard Africa leadership alumni must stand out as a Change orientated leader who can actively compete in the global marketplace and solving complex challenges facing our region. We achieve this via Youth Leadership, Entrepreneurship training and Mentorship with programmes like Mntase Chats, Pass the Baton, and Fan Her Flame.Read more
Through Education: We actively promote thought leadership in education. South Africa needs foresight and a holistic approach to education if South Africa is to become relevant in the Digital Age. Our programmes envision young people on the future of education, alignment of purpose and their environment. Young leaders must influence progressive transformation in education pursuing appropriate solutions and technologies that advance Africa’s People, Resources, Arts, Heritage and their Global competitiveness.Read more
Blackboard Africa is the Future.
This movement has manifested in Fan Her Flame the 4-module lead-HER-ship program that equips young girls to identify their why and take the world by storm. With this program, Blackboard Africa reminds young women of their responsibilities as leaders in our nation and enables them with practical tools that will help achieve their purpose
“boys will NOT be boys” as an anti-slogan for
what boys are traditionally taught in our society. We seek to create uncensored safe spaces for boys, where long term brotherhoods are formed, boys become men and are groomed to be leaders for the advancement of the African continent.
The program is about conscious preparation of young people between the ages 12-25 to overcome the hurdles of life in pursuit of social impact. We use it as a tool for raising Social Entrepreneurs while equipping them with Communication, Relationships and Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Decision Making that can bring positive change in the environment.
