TeenActiv (www.teenactiv.co.za) is an online resources centre that provides teachers with access to resources that can be used in the classroom for life orientation (LO) studies. The programme is designed in line with the school’s life orientation curriculum and focuses on health, fitness, career, citizenship and nutrition.
Trustlink gets involved by providing financial support by way of sponsorship for TeenActiv, and extending the support network for the schools in terms of resources that they can draw from for support. For example, for career days, we call on our business partners to support our initiatives thus providing the school with a wider base of careers to showcase in their schools.
Trustlink also facilitates the up skilling of teachers’ computer skills.
Six schools in the Pretoria region are currently being sponsored by Trustlink to belong to the TeenActiv program.
