What we do

Over the past six years, we have proven ourselves to be one of the most effective (and cost-effective) programmes in South Africa aimed at addressing the challenges of youth unemployment.

Run on sound business lines, our unique peer-on peer leadership model has achieved a ripple effect of positive impact at individual, school and community level that costs between 50 and 80% less than similar programmes, and has been proven to provide R4 worth of value for every R1 invested.

Life-changing competencies are developed and acquired through contextual, practical projects which provide the foundation that assists learners in succeeding in the next stage of their lives; be it further education, starting their own enterprise or in the work place.

Columba Leadership’s unique, proven, values-based model has started a movement that can be measured by its results, created environments more conducive to teaching and learning, produced a groundswell of young people willing, ready and able to take their place in this country’s workforce and, most importantly of all, fostered hope for a better future for every single South African.
