"There’s a radical – and wonderful – new idea here… that all children could and should be inventors of their own theories, critics of other people’s ideas, analysers of evidence, and makers of their own personal marks on the world. It’s an idea with revolutionary implications. If we take it seriously." - Deborah Meier
What is Spirit of Youth?
The Spirit of Youth programme is a forum in which 11th and 12th Grade learners critically engage on relevant issues that they may better define and actuate the South Africa in which they would like to live.
Learners are selected on the criteria that each has distinguished her- or himself as a leader in their school community. The expectation is that these young people are likely to have a disproportionally high impact on their immediate peers and society at large.
The programme brings together learners from a myriad of social, economic, geographical and educational backgrounds from across Gauteng. Our aim is that this year-long discourse will develop new understanding of the South African context and its possibilities.
