High Level of Personal Mentorship
We specialise in facilitating processes of personal growth and discovery in young people. Over the years we have consciously sought to remain both relevant and current in our approach to ensure that we effectively reach our constantly changing youthful generation. The combination of our team’s varied backgrounds, expertise and experience, creates a unique synergy in supporting what has proven to be a successful and unique programme. What distinguishes Target Life, is the high level of personal mentorship by our leadership team.
The divide between high school, tertiary education and the ‘corporate’ sector is becoming problematic because young people’s lack of emotional intelligence is a major cause of failure. This deficiency is evident in the dropout rate of 1st year tertiary students and the growing number of students who change courses during their study years. This inadequacy equally applies to young adults entering the workforce after tertiary training. It is imperative, therefore, to cultivate self-leadership skills that will equip young people with both the hope and vision to become more competent in pursuing their future.
Social media has caused our youth to disconnect themselves from ‘old-fashioned’ communal activities and to live in a fragmented virtual reality. As a result, HR Departments are forced to provide extra training to make ‘next-generation’ employees efficient and stable in the workplace. The opportunities provided to students to grow their self-leadership skills during the Target Life year can significantly eliminate this problem, thus a long-term benefit emerges for tertiary education institutions, future employers, the individuals themselves, as well as the communities they live in and, ultimately, South Africa as a whole. This positive outcome brings a shift from the Target Life development programme being a luxury to becoming a necessity.
Target Life specializes in facilitating a process for post-school youth to discover their calling and purpose in life, find their true identity, unlock their full potential, acquire essential skills, ignite their passions and forge perseverance and, in so doing, provides them with the opportunity to make a significant impact on the world around them.
The key to both happiness and success is to develop a balanced life, therefore, we focus on nurturing body, soul and spirit, thus assisting young people to deal with their past, present and future. A year’s investment in the Target Life programme can ensure a more stable and meaningful future for themselves as individuals, their future families and the corporate environment alike.
