The Programme, fully paid for by Boxer and co-sponsors Clover, was an overwhelming success, with the many young leaders taking home incredible memories, many new and strengthened skills and a lifetime of new friendships.

“We are overjoyed with this year’s programme. Our 50 guests took every opportunity presented to them this week and excelled.

“They will now go back home and inspire others to be great, and do great. This is a massive win for Boxer, and for the communities in which they live.

“Boxer is dedicated to uplifting the youth and shaping future leaders, and the BYLP, over the past 2 decades has pursued this goal with vigour.

“Next year, we intend on taking another 50 learners on this journey and making even more memories for them,” said Boxer Group Executive for Stakeholder Sustainability and Engagement, Ntombi Dludla.

The week long Programme saw the 50 learners fly to KZN, receive full programme kit including shirts, tracksuits and pants.

A week long full roster of activities kept the leaders busy, from abseiling, to ocean swims, leadership skills workshops and more.

For some guests, it was the first time that they had experience flights and a swim in the ocean. In addition, special appearances from BYLP alumni inspired the current generation to reach for the stars and reach their potential.
