Boxer Superstores celebrated their 16th annual Youth Leadership Programme recently at highly anticipated event held in KwaZulu-Natal, Durban.

Every now and then, everyone needs a little inspiration as a reminder to follow their dreams and take calculated risks.

Wanting to ensure that bright youth are empowered to make the right decisions and follow a promising path in life, Boxer Superstores has partnered with Nedbank to host their Boxer Youth Leadership Programme 2018.

The five day adventure youth leadership camp was held in Zinkwazi, KwaZulu-Natal and it equips learners with soft and hard life skills.

This year, 45 students from across South Africa and Swaziland were selected to attend this all expenses paid initiative.

Learners were required to write an essay in response to this topic:

“If you had just three wishes, what would they be, and why?” The retailer received thousands of entries from across South Africans and Swaziland.

“Each year, the level of essay submissions improve, in terms of structure, creativity and individuality. The topic presented this year allowed students the chance to express their inner most desires and be as creative as they wished to be.

“We enjoyed reading each essay and it was very difficult to select the top 45 as there were so many great entries” said Jaded Skinner, Boxer’s Digital Marketing Co-Ordinator.

After five days of intense team building, discussions and bonding, strangers became friends and in no time, friends became family.

Each of the 45 who entered the B.Y.L.P 2018 camp left with a new found sense of self belief, confidence and appreciation for who they are and what they have.

The Boxer Youth Leadership Programme continues to shape to minds of today’s youth into powerful leaders of tomorrow.
