We have reached the end of the 18-week Grow Leadership Academy programme, ending it off in a flood of tears, smiles and celebrations.

It has been an amazing journey of hope with the GROW students and, having witnessed it, we decided to close it off with a special panel, allowing these young leaders to share their journey at the GROW Leadership Academy. For many of the students the GROW Leadership Academy has been more than just a course. It has been a place of discovering purpose and passion, inspiring eagerness in them to shape their respective communities and drive to instill  hope into the lives of other youth.

These are some of the tweets captured from the students on their last day at the GROW Leadership Academy:







We are truly inspired by this group of youth and look forward to seeing the next phase of their growth as they enter into an internship programme and not forgetting the big celebration of their accomplishments at their graduation in September.

Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have.” – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

This is a video of some GROW students sharing their experiences:
