TCM was established in 2004 with the desire to empower disadvantaged communities in South Africa. We recently launched our 10 weeks EVOLVE Gap Experience program, focusing on the other end of the social spectrum - equipping international youth through skills training, adventure activities and interactive excursions.
We believe meaningful relationships are a key aspect in a young adult's life, both for self-discovery and reaching one's full potential. We have therefor developed an all-inclusive 10 weeks program for young adults (18 - 23), who want to get a fresh perspective on life and discover their passion through skills training sessions, loads of adventure activities and interactive excursions.
The EVOLVE Gap Experience is set in the beautiful Limpopo province of South Africa. We also travel to the picturesque East Coast of Kwazulu Natal for a week 'break' were participants will learn to surf, snorkel or get the opportunity to do an internationally accredited Open Water Scuba Diver course as an optional activity.Why South Africa? South Africa is known as the Rainbow Nation. So what better way to interact with different cultures in one stunning location? We only operate with small groups of 10 - 15 students in order to give personal attention to each individual's needs.
Our program leaders are a married couple, who themselves have three beautiful daughters. Diederik was a school principal who has extensive knowledge in interaction with youth and Marietjie is a registered physiotherapist who will be doing some of the healthy living and emotional intelligence content with the students. They are presenting most of our in-house content and will be responsible for the well-being of the students during their stay with us, whether at our base or while they are on tour.
