Who We Are

I'll Never Be The Same

Principal Praise

As Director of an international group of schools, I have become increasingly aware of the need for a new impulse within education that will inspire the next generation with the passion, confidence and ability to take the lead in organisations, in society, in their local communities and in their own lives. The GenDerations prorgamme steps boldly into this gap and offers young people essential skills and tools that are dearly needed as this generation grow into adulthood. It is a unique programme that I have seen to have deep and lasting impact in every young person who participates. My two teenage sons have completed the programme and have been transformed by it. I am planning to introduce the GenDerations programme into all of our schools worldwide as soon as they become available, which sadly they are not yet

The Mentor Training was organised professionally, well presented and methodically sound; additionally it offered a very practical approach and touched me surprisingly deep. Beyond my initial desire to contribute to others, I felt contributed to in my own personal growth. I learned things which will benefit me and my family for years to come.

BoysToMen and the respective Girls Program offers a new freedom of expression. Backed by well-trained adults kids find their identity. They feel seen, foster self-worth and learn to apply themselves!
