Keeping it real
GEORGE NEWS FLASH – “Don’t gamble with your life. Rather obtain your goals!”
This is the phrase that Ermin Claassen (21) from Blanco would share with others who are considering signing up for a course that is changing his life.
Like his 15 classmates, Ermin did not know what he wanted to do with his life at the beginning of 2012. Now, after five months at RealStart, things are different. Becoming a chef and opening a restaurant in a few years time is what this young man dreams about. This because he now has a better idea of who he is and what he wants out of life.
Jonathan Stanton-Humphreys, CEO of RealStart, says his organisation’s aim is to see the holistic development of each student personally, spiritually, emotionally and intellectually.
Although it is a Christian organisation, Stanton-Humphreys emphasises that students who join the course do not have to be of the same faith.
The mission of RealStart is to passionately care about the future of disadvantaged school-leavers and use the best possible means to change their lives, set their vocational course and enable them to become positive rolemodels and change-agents within South Africa.
