MYO Alumni Program
Due to the increasing study load at their respective High Schools, learners leave MYO when they have completed grade 8. Though they are no longer involved in our daily programming, we encourage our alumni to remain in touch. We offer all MYO alumni free use of our library and we dedicate computers for them to use for their homework and research.
We have also started a formal alumni program where former MYO students are invited once a month, for 90 minutes, to participate in workshops conducted by a life skills coach. The alumni are split into two groups : grade 9 and 10 forms Group One, grades 11 and 12 form Group Two. Our goals are to make sure that all of our former students have access to the resources they need to make good choices about their future. Growing up in an impoverished environment, many of our students do not have mentors and role models whom they can turn to for assistance. MYO endeavors to fulfill that role for our former learners.
In conjunction with this program, we have embraced the concept “Once an MYO kid, always an MYO kid!”
