Janelle Fielies, our Phase 1 Coordinator visits afterschool programmes in New York!

2019 Extended Education Practitioner Training Programme (EEPTP) Finalist – January 2019, 53 After School Practitioners from 34 organisations attended the Stellenbosch EEPTP Short Course. Our Phase 1 coordinator, Janelle Fielies was one of 5 finalists selected to take part in the Learning Tour in New York in September 2019.

This travel opportunity was fully funded by the Western Cape government and Community Chest. Janelle thoroughly enjoyed it and felt enlightened by the experience as it gave her first-hand insights into a number of afterschool programmes operating in New York, learning about their approaches, methodologies and inspirations. Janelle returned with a learning brief that will undoubtedly add value to Go for Gold Phase 1 operations in 2020 and beyond.
