From Hazyview Digital Learning Campus (HDLC): GWF’s curriculum for the Bridging Academy students has added mentor sessions for the young adult students, most of whom have never been guided about career choices and life-skills during their high school years. GWF Student Support Mercyful Mathebula and her group celebrated a birthday of one of their member as a way of getting to know one another. These groups are aimed at encouraging young people to start talking about issues that affect them and planning for their careers and future.
