TEENAGERS from impoverished communities don’t have the opportunity to just be kids, many dropping out of school to help support their families. D4D gives school dropouts the chance to use drama to develop critical personal and professional skills - such as ethics, manners, behaviour and language - to make them more employable and keep them from falling into the trap of harmful life choices, such as smoking, alcohol and abusive behaviour.
DROPOUTS between the ages of 18 to 25 from marginalised communities are provided a three-month, 180-hour course on vocational, life, and behavioural skills. Mentors work with the youth to identify their interests, help hone their abilities in their chosen field, maximise their support network by engaging their parents, provide exposure to professional and community environments, and involve them in extracurricular activities in the hopes of helping them turn their passions into a career.
Bright Future changes lives in many ways. It empowers young people to believe in themselves, to develop their communication skills, to express themselves through drama, and to build-up anticipation and expectation of how the working environment might be.
We're happy to see the sessions and services are creating much needed awareness and the difference they are making in students’ lives. From low-income families, our students don’t have much guidance about possible careers and courses they could take up.
I had no idea what to expect when I was asked to teach Bright Future participants English, but ended up being a journey I will never forget. I’m happy organisations like NRI exist to assist those who don’t have the opportunity to gain expensive degrees.
