Excitement surrounds scholars across South Africa as they start applying to attend The Boxer Youth Leadership Programme 2016. Over the years BYLP has become a highly anticipated event for students between the ages of 16 and 18. The annual five day adventure and skills development programme was created to positively empower the minds of future leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, doctors etc, and has had a significant effect on those that were lucky enough to attend thus far.

The success of the programme is derived from feedback from the learners who attend over the years and it is what ensures its continuity.

The useful skills that are imparted to young adults through a physical and intellectual capacity are phenomenal and offer life changing experiences. The forty-five lucky students chosen nationwide are taught how to navigate obstacle courses, abseil down a mountain, cross a river safely and so much more. Over and above those fun activities, the remarkable forty-five learners are taught the value of team work, as well as how to develop their individual talents.

The successful candidates will participate in discussions surrounding current affairs and will be able to express their opinions within a safe and controlled environment.

Pupils will be enlightened by motivational talks and career guidance presentations as well as so much more.

A team of experienced skills development facilitators will be present throughout the five days of fun, excitement and learning. This is an amazing opportunity for young adults from different walks of life and circumstances to build friendships and life long bonds whilst gaining a wealth of knowledge. It is a chance for students to expand their horizons; experience new challenges, explore their options and express their opinions and ideas. Entry into the Boxer Youth Leadership Programme 2016 is as simple as it has been over its past 13 years of existence. If you are in grades 9, 10 or 11 and between the ages of 16 and 18 years, then you can enter this exciting competition and stand a chance of being selected as one of the forty-five fortunate scholars to spend a week at the Suela Zimbili Adventure centre in Zinkwazi, KwaZulu-Natal between the 29th of March and 3rd of April 2013.
