We believe in a world where young people are equipped to fulfil their potential and actively contribute to the creation of flourishing communities.
We equip young people from schools located in lower socio-economic areas with the psychological skills and broadened perspective necessary to set meaningful goals, overcome setbacks and persevere in the pursuit of their dreams.
The Helmsman Project lives by a philosophy of community partnering and cooperates with schools, community organisations, government and businesses.
The Helmsman Project has four core values that represent a set of characteristics deeply embedded in the fabric of the organisation and that align with the beliefs and behaviours we wish to nurture in our participants, volunteers, people & partners. These are:
Hope: We actively encourage open-mindedness to innovative ideas, the setting of challenging goals and promote agency in the pursuit of our objectives.
Self-regulation: We are determined to be committed, adaptive and dedicated to our purpose.
Resilience: We embrace challenges, overcome setbacks and remain focused on working towards a bright future.
Community: We are dedicated to creating a supportive, collaborative environment, internally and externally, through which we achieve systemic change within communities.
