Chrysalis Academy

The Chrysalis Academy is a social crime prevention & youth development organisation, which empowers young people ‘at risk’ to take responsibility for their personal growth.
This is achieved through a 5-year development programme which starts with an intensive 3-month residential empowerment training programme divided into four phases. Throughout the programme, the students have access to individual counselling and life coaching based on individual assessment. Furthermore, parent workshops and family sessions are offered to promote positive parenting and caring families in the community. After graduation, the students enrol for a 12 month internship to gain valuable work experience. They are also encouraged to give back to their communities as positive role models by volunteering at community organisations and schools. The graduates will be continuously tracked and further supported for 5 years to ensure that sustainable personal growth is achieved
