Leadership Academy Relaunch 2021

Four Years Ago, It Was An Idea And Now It Is A Leading Authority In Youth Empowerment And Entrepreneurship

  • Welcoming our leaders in training – 15 girls and 15 boys to start July 2021

On the 11th of June 2021, former Leadership Academy Graduates and the Eskilz College team are welcoming the class of 2021 Leadership Academy learners in celebration getting into the program.

The Leadership Academy is a program powered by Eskilz College, which is an accredited FET college that was established in 2002 with the vision to empower South Africans through quality education. Eskilz College has been offering free learning experiences, especially, under the Leadership Academy which thrives to expose young beneficiaries to vast opportunities to gain knowledge on leadership and business skills through courses that are relevant to what is current and soon to be the future.

The academy was established in 2018 where it was initially called the Leadership for Girls Academy but in 2019 Leadership for boys had been introduced. The aim of this program is to empower and uplift through challenging the young learners’ way of thinking by means of exposing them to varies kinds of business sectors to groom them into becoming future leaders and entrepreneurs that will better their lives and the lives of other people.

This program has been truly impactful that our 2018 Leadership Academy graduates; Vanessa Ndlovu (19) and Asamkele Menzeleli (19) have come together with the Eskilz College team to assist in reaching out to more high school learners in Cosmo City and Weltevreden Park. While organizing meetings with facilitators and mentors as well as brainstorming on more effective modules to add to the program that will catapult young minds.
