The Sizanani Mentorship Programme was launched in 2007 by Laurence Leblanc from RATP international. Since then, the programme has been helping high school learners from Alexandra township in Johannesburg to succeed in their studies and gain access to universities through the provision of mentors, career information and bursaries.


Whether you are an individual or a company, there are various ways to get involved with Sizanani Mentorship and make a difference in the lives of our young learners.

Becoming a mentor is a very rewarding experience that allows you to witness first hand the development and growth of a young adult. You will assist him/her throughout Grade 10, 11 and 12 with the aim of seeing him/her access university.

If you do not wish to become a mentor, you can also help by providing job shadowing opportunities, present your profession at one of our life orientation session, donate laptops, etc.


We are proud that so many young kids from difficult background graduated and got a job in a challenging context in South Africa, thanks to the Sizanani Mentorship programme. Here is the database of our students and graduates since 2017 and a few examples of success stories.

Through the years, we have gathered significant information that will be useful for all learners such as study tips, information about career orientation, universities, colleges, bursaries, etc.
