The 2010 TEENAGERS Social Development and Upliftment Holiday Project
In association with the ACVV
CODE TEEN recruited 150 Teens from Maitland/Brooklyn and Koeberg areas and over the 4 week school holiday period during the 2010 World Cup kept the teens …
SAFE- INFORMED and INSPIRED as we produced the ultimate “Teens On Stage” BACKSTAGE PASS experience.
The 150 teens were indulged with crucial life skills on self esteem, self belief and self respect- leading up to the ultimate stage show production.Workshops included overcoming life’s hurdles, accepting challenges and ultimately becoming the you that you really can be!
Together with CODE TEEN the 150 teens over the 4 weeks were styled, trained and groomed by SA’s top models, make up artists, stylists, DJ’s, choreographers, Hip Hop dancers.
Finally all the hard work culminating in the “Backstage Pass Teens On Stage” production where the local community experienced the ultimate showcase of talent and reformed ambition as the 150 teens produced -showcased and unveiled a medley of talent, aspirations, determination and dreams …
ULTIMATELY … the destiny we are ALL capable of.
