In the frantic times we live, growing into adulthood is not an easy matter. The increased independence that comes with maturity brings about challenges and responsibilities that young people are often unprepared to meet effectively.
At the same time, young people nowadays are offered more opportunities to be creative and entrepreneurial, to exercise leadership and to earn money and, more importantly, to acquire experience that will serve them well in their career and professional development. Unfortunately, many of these opportunities go un-utilised due to lack of awareness or skills.
Responding to the challenges and opportunities that young people face, CIIM, has developed a fun 2-week summer programme for young people between the ages of 15-18 years old. The programme aims to transform character, behaviour and the way of thinking of adolescents.
Through a series of themes offered in the form of activities, games, and challenges, participants will gain new perspectives in personal, social and professional-development and prepare themselves to better address the challenges of school and life.
