Our Belief Systems


It is important for everyone to believe that they can have an impact.

Our programs aim to empower young people to build on their own values and self-belief system.

Our programs deliver impactful messages that empower young people to create a positive change in their life and other lives around them.

Energy Learning

Energy Learning is the difference that sets all JCP programs apart.

Young people thrive on engagement and energy and we deliver it to the highest standard.

Learning is taught through interactive sessions that offer young people an opportunity to step up and out of their comfort zones. In all programs, we aim to leave a lasting message on all participants.

Inspiring Leadership

Everybody has leadership potential. We are all meant to shine.

Our team of leadership presenters offer a unique look into the lives of ordinary people, living extraordinary lives.

We believe that all programs must challenge our young people to embrace their leadership potential and develop it, each and every day.

BEAST Program

The BEAST Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for at-risk and vulnerable young people to engage in their leadership potential. This program builds leaders out of the youth society has forgotten. Every young person has the potential to be a leader in our community.
