EMPOWERING Teenagers and developing SELF ESTEEM through Production & Music

Code Teen in association with GrandWest afforded an unparalleled opportunity over 1 weekend in JULY to an excess of 1500 teenagers and 10 schools during their performance to the SOLD OUT Grand Arena of 5000 people per day.

The concept was to develop within the teens confidence and self esteem chanelled through production-performance -music and entertainment whilst simultaneously encouraging spirit and mutual support and respect for fellow teens all sharing the same passions and dreams.

The teens were challenged with fund raising opportunities from ticket sales-Prize opportunity for Spirit and support which would go towards developing music further within the schools as well as supporting less advantaged schools.
The initiative was such an overwhelming success it has already been sponsored by GrandWest and scheduled in the calendar for July 2012

Some “Thank You Quotes” from Heads of Schools

There has been shouts and tears of joy,the kids have walked tall,they have functioned even more than before as a team.But most of all,they are grateful.And this is something that touches me right in the middle of my heart.This wondrous opportunity has given us all a reason to reflect and remember that life is great!Thank you”

I’ve had the mom of a child in the show who stutters,in tears at how much confidence and enthusiasm her child has acquired because of this-Thank you”

It was an unforgettable,amazing experience and I was blown away by all our talented teenagers and proud of the hardworking,inspiring teachers”

Thank you so much to you and your team for creating such wonderful memories for our learners.I know they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and they definitely did us proud”

12 ordinary and regular girls all with dreams and aspirations hit JOZI for a full weekend with the CODE TEEN team and were treated to a once in a lifetime experience thanks to the Sunday Sun Newspaper.
The weekend was all in preparation for the final judging of Sunbabe of the Year and transformed the girls both physically and mentally.

It was a full program especially geared towards making the most of ourselves & life’s opportunities AND developing a positive self image

The weekend was loaded with image,fashion and modelling advice from the industry’s most glamorous and respected specialists and thanks to our fabulous sponsors Black Like Me and IMAN Cosmetics - the girls were treated to make overs- DIY tips and the most fabulous goodybags.

The calendar shoot was ultimately the weekends highlight and the girls performed like professionals in front of the cameras, ensuring the Sunday Sun calendar issue was another sellout

FINALLY it was time for the Final Event and the trendy Turbine Hall venue was overflowing with celebrities- and media all clammering to catch a look at how regular girls against all odds made it to the top- realised their dreams and transformed into the stars they were born to be.



6 Days with just us GIRLSAND the pressure is already on for the next one in Cape Town - Johannesburg and Durban

Camp 17 kicked off in style at CAVENDISH SQUARE where the girls were treated to Strawberry Smoothie “Mocktails” and scrumptuous chocolate brownies.Then laden with “to die for” goodie bags the girls left in the CAMP 17 Bus for our exclusive Camp destination.

WOW.. Where to start .. Morning Yoga on the lawn was followed by daily self esteem and self exploration life lessons which tackled all the “minefields” and challenges faced by todays 21st Century Teenage Girl.

Then the daily Challenges begun .. which saw enormous competition between our 4 HOITY TOITY teams
The Lolas
The Hoity Toitys
The Ooh La Loves’
The La Di Da’s

Camp 17 was all about fabulosity and the challenges were all executed with real style
From the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire Celebrity Quizz” to the “Junk to Funk Fashion Show” to the most elegant “To Dine For” Italian Fiesta Dinner Party - the girls went all out and seriously camped in STYLE.
BUT the highlight had to be the “Get your Fame On Celebrity Concert” which showcased all the girls and would be a”sellout”on Broadway.

Thanks to the most phenomenal sponsors HOITY TOITY,YARDLEY OATMEAL,SLOGGI,EVENT SAFE,MARC ANTHONY,KISS,BOSTIK and of course CAVENDISH SQUARE - our girls were also treated to fantastic workshops.
Hair and Make Up brought to us by YARDLEY was with none other than the famous Guru himself “Carl Isaacs”
The Sloggi “My Bra” workshop was a real hit (not to mention the stunning prize of Sloggi Underwear for 1 year which went to one lucky girl)and
Event Safe brought us the Wing Tjun ” Anti Rape ” workshop which empowered all the girls both physically & mentally.
BUT the all time favourite where the girls spent most of their “me time” was at the Pamper Parlour painting their nails in this seasons hottest summer colours and at night sipping hot chocolate-toasting marshmallows and catching up on girly chat time.

The last day came far too quickly and was a treasure chest of emotions-hugs and tears at the thought of leaving all the fun and new friends behind and having to return to the real world again .. BUT armed with the gift of a lifetime experience the girls were all transported in the Camp 17 bus safely back to Cavendish Square and welcomed by Family and Friends ..
