WHAT IS PROTEGES?
The Proteges is a 6-week program for young people between the age of 16 and 24. Why should you take part? To improve your social, practical, professional, and personal skills through fun activities, interactive discussions, and classes guided by talented mentors. We intend to help you learn to enrich your lives through your own experiences at the program. We have designed The Proteges to help you understand yourselves and appreciate how you are connected with the norms of life and society, with the "do's and don'ts" and "the cool and not-so-cool". Afterall, anything we do has an effect on the greater whole not just ourselves.
THE PROTEGES FORMAT
We want to achieve a perfect formula to integrate knowledge and life experiences and stimulate the minds of the new generation to being about a better tomorrow. We are accumulating the combined knowledge and expertise of all our mentors in an effort to refine the students and deliver them the right message. What most people consider "free time", we consider an opportunity, a precious chance to utilize that time and transform it into a learning opportunity for our students, wherein every moment can be taken advantage of to learn, interact and deliver.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO DISCOVER?
