*e x p a n d*, Kaleidoscope’s growth program for teens, starts on 26 June 2014

*e x p a n d* supports learning as children move towards their teen years. The focus is on developing thinking and problem solving skills that are geared to the world around them. It  emphasizes the development of a positive self image and skills to deal with emotions and relationships. The program builds sound habits that support children lifelong. The program’s unique blended curriculum includes concepts, skills and behaviors that regular education does not touch upon. The aim of the program is to help youngsters evolve into better equipped, more empowered and happier individuals.

Kaleidoscope’s *unfold* and *expand* programs have generated very good results and have proved useful and interesting to participants and parents alike. We launched *expand* in 2008 and have run 8 batches so far. The programs is run only once in a year.

Enterprise :: Power of your mind :: Creative Writing

Three special programs for teenagers!

Enterprise : How does a business make money? What happens when a business doesn’t bother about its customers? What happens if a business makes products of poor quality? What happens if there is no cooperation in the team?

Enterprise is a learning program that equips youngsters with knowledge, skills and beliefs about money, business, design, production, decision making, roles and responsibilities, team behaviour, values, ethics, and about entrepreneurship.

The program is designed to take learners through an entire lifecycle of a business, from setting it up to selling a product and doing a balance sheet. They have to form a company, allocate responsibilities, choose a product, get funds, design, actually manufacture, advertise and sell, all along keeping time and accounts. And finally they calculate how much the company is worth and their profits.

This program has been very successful and very well received by parents and teenagers the last nine times.
