Mentoring through Sport
The aim of the Mentoring through Sport short course is to introduce learners to the principles of mentoring from a young age.
Calling Education has a well-developed network of organisations that mentor youth effectively through the vehicle of sport. When learners graduate from Calling Academy, they need to have a framework for what mentoring is and how to multiply its effect in others.
Presentation partners in this short course are still being developed, but will include:
|Casper Steenkamp||Casper studied in the USA after completing his high school career as one of the best tennis players in South Africa in his age group. He is the CEO of Kingdom DNA; an organisation that mentors and develops youth through sport.|
|Godfrey Mmagawo||Godfrey got involved in using sport for social impact while studying Criminology. His vibrant personality and solid character are an inspiration to the children and youth he works with as a Project Manager at Sport for Christ Action South Africa (SCAS).|
