Program aimed at ensuring that 
the school environment does not present health risks to learners and teachers. This 
program is aimed at identifying, evaluating and controlling school related health hazards.                                                       
Hazards in schools may be in many forms including physical hazards, chemical hazards, ergonomic hazards, biological hazards and psychosocial hazards.


Directed at the youth (up to 18 years old), Dr Myeni offers this program in partnership with Dr Johan Maxwell, a leadership guru. This program is offered free of charge, learners do not have to pay to attend this program. 
Dr Maxwell does not attend the events. This program is comprised of 16 lessons spread out over four units with the goal of helping teenagers learn leadership values and teaching them how to apply them to their own lives from leadership expert John C. Maxwell. The iChoose leadership values program was designed to help students accomplish five goals:                                                                                                        
▪ Identify with the 16 values of leadership 
▪ Take ownership of their choices 
▪ Practice leadership values and develop those skills 
▪ Evaluate themselves with their applied knowledge 
▪ Take turns guiding small group discussions

During the master minds sessions, we unpack leadership and assist 
participants to become better leaders. These are small group sessions of up to 10 participants.
