Enrichment Programmes

EwB provides opportunities for learning and leadership, care and psychosocial support for all its tutors and learners through a range of extra curricular activities.

Enrichment programmes increase learning, motivation and challenge.

Our offerings

Holiday Programmes: During school holidays, Grades 4 to 10 EwB learners participate in holiday programmes to learn maths, English and science by playing games, participating in sports, writing and performing plays and going on excursions.

Surfing Workshops: Every month students from the Cape Town region participate in a surfing workshop aimed at engaging, empowering and uplifting disadvantaged and at-risk youth. For many, it’s their first surfing experience.

This has been made possible through an ongoing collaboration between EwB, Surf without Borders and the 9Miles Project.

Life Skills Programmes: Offered on Saturdays. These include the skills needed for job applications such as resume writing and interviewing

Mentorship: EwB offers a mentoring programme for students currently enrolled in EwB’s after-school programme – connecting adult mentors in North America with mentees in South Africa. Mentors and mentees meet virtually weekly, bi-weekly or monthly depending on the needs of the mentees. Topics cover a wide range of areas such as school, careers, family issues, as well as how to improve communication skills.

Choir: Students from Fezeka Senior Secondary participate in the award-winning Fezeka School Choir under the leadership of Choir Master Monde Mdingi, whose salary is funded by EwB. The choir is a considerable source of pride for the individuals involved, as well as the school and community.
