We make dreams come true

In 2014, South African learners from Grades 3-7 achieved less than 40% in Mathematics with grades 9’s achieving a mere 10.8%. Nebula has identified that one of the root causes for such results is the lack of academic and personal support received by learners in underserved communities.

The problem we aim to solve:

Lack of support and motivation for learners to succeed at school and pursue their dreams.

The solution our project offers:

We engage youth in creative expression, entrepreneurial activity and experiential learning.

About the project

A pivotal factor contributing to South Africa’s crisis of youth unemployment and low academic performance by learners is the lack of support and motivation to succeed at school. Young people are not empowered to take ownership of their futures or sufficiently encouraged to invest in personal and community development. In this context how can our youth develop a sense of their individual purpose, the power of shaping and manifesting their own visions, harnessing their passion and talents?

Nebula creates and facilitates a nurturing, dynamic environment where young South Africans can explore their potential and grow through experiential learning and entrepreneurial activity. Rooted in our passion for skateboarding, art, design, music and dance, Nebula sources strategic partnerships and creates solutions to the social and economic challenges our youth face in their communities.

Nebula believes that by giving young people the opportunity to create their future we are continuously practicing the values of Creativity, Interdependence and Responsibility thus creating the foundation for socially & economically active youth. The Nebula Youth programme has 3 objectives:

  1. To build a community of young and passionate skateboarders, artists, designers, musicians and dancers.
  2. To support and engage Nebula Youth through entrepreneurial activity and experiential learning
  3. To facilitate growth through coaching and mentorship
