Talking Social Change | Helping Youth find their Voice

The country’s recent economic downgrade and political events came as a shock to all South Africans and our TSiBA students were certainly not immune.

However; as an academic institution TSiBA is committed to supporting dialogue, questioning and thought leadership with our students and community. We can all find our voice and move from being a passive subject to an informed, active citizen.

The country’s recent economic downgrade and political events came as a shock to all South Africans and TSiBA students were certainly not immune. However; as an academic institution TSiBA is committed to supporting dialogue, questioning and thought leadership with our students and community, so we can all them find our voice and move from being a passive subject to an informed, active citizen.
This year was no different and in May we gathered one of our most valuable resources in the community - school principals and leaders – to acknowledge and appreciate their contribution to the work that we do and form a dynamic ‘think tank’ about this very topic. 15 high school principals brought their top-achieving learners from around the ‘Cape Flats’ including The Leadership College, Zeekoevlei High School, Alexander Sinton, Intsebenziswano Secondary School & Belhar High. 
Judging by the impressive level of dialogue and insight from the young Grade 12 leaders being nominated for TSiBA scholarships by these community youth leaders it appears South Africa’s future will be in good hands -if we can simply continue to Ignite Opportunities!

   

The Tertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA) was founded in 2004 with a vision to “Ignite Opportunity”.  Our mission is to be an innovative learning community that graduates entrepreneurial leaders who ignite opportunity and social change.
