Ubuntu Education Programme
The Ubuntu Education Programme is an extracurricular character development programme for young people aged 11-16 years. It supports students to develop resilience, interpersonal skills and their sense of identity, to equip them with tools to succeed at school and beyond.
We are very excited to be bringing the programme online as an online course for young people aged 11-16. Designed as extra-curricular programme, we are now offering the programme online as a response to the the current situation with Covid-19. With the vast majority of young people now learning from home, the Ubuntu Education Programme gives young people a unique opportunity to engage with concepts often overlooked in the classroom setting, explore their sense of identity, ambitions, and cultural heritage.
The course consists of three series of workshops covering Cultural, Social and Spiritual education, which last three weeks each. Young people are asked to commit to three weeks’ of sessions, and are also welcome to complete the entire 9-week course.
Sibusiso Tshabalala will be delivering the interactive sessions online, with presentations, demonstrations and interactive discussion with students. This course is freely available for young people, although donations are welcome from those in a position to do so, in order to cover the course costs.
About the programme
Based on the South African philosophy of Ubuntu, our programme focuses on building character and developing essential life skills to enable all young people to flourish regardless of perceived ability or social background.
Interactive sessions focus on social, cultural and spiritual development and use engaging methods such as role-playing, storytelling, stimulating games and introspection.
Our practitioners come from a broad range of rich cultural heritages with an abundance of knowledge and experience. Using tried and tested methods, they deliver an engaging and enriching experience for young people in Bristol.
