Eagles Rising Leadership Academy, situated on the historic farm of Elandskloof at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, is a sanctuary for students from disadvantaged communities. Students who have matriculated, and show leadership potential, are selected to spend a year on the campus, with the intention of inspiring, mentoring and teaching them. The academy is a non profit organisation, and was established in 2003. The staff is led by the chief executive officer, Bruce Jackman, and they not only mentor the students, but also live side-by-side with them. Eagles Rising will be having an open day on Saturday March 9, from 10.30am to noon. For more information, contact Shani Steyn at 081 576 3913.
