Cell C’s Take a Girl Child to Work Day (TAGCTWD) is proud to announce the launch of its new online version of the campaign: the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day Programme®. This new online programme, which is available through the CellC girl web portal, is designed to give learners across the country access to the benefits of TAGCTWD, for #MoreThanADay and on any day of the year, from anywhere and at any time. It is open to both boy and girl learners.
The programme includes five courses:
- Discovering Your Path
- Work Preparation
- At the Workplace
- Conflict Management
It’s aimed at empowering learners by helping them develop skills that they can apply in their school studies, the work-place and beyond. Regarded as one of South Africa’s largest collaborative acts of volunteerism, Cell C’s TAGTW has become meaningful to girls across the country as it is a crucial time in their lives when they decide which career path to follow.
Previously, the initiative was aimed at girls between Grade 10 and 12 but this year, for the first time, Cell C extended the program to include girls in Grade 8 and 9 as well. This is because Grade 8 is technically the initial point at which they choose their core school subjects, which sets them on their respective career paths.
