Investing in South Africa's Future Leaders

Young Adults Inspired Destiny Attendees
Youth Day, this year, was a special day for 130 of South Africa's students who got to attend Dr John Demartini's customised Young Adults Inspired Destiny programme (YAID). Students from diverse backgrounds, ranging in age between 13 and 23, spent the day with the world renowned human behavioural specialist, author and educator learning how to develop their inherent genius so they can live inspired and empowered lives.

Each year, The Demartini Institute sponsors many students onto the programme from CIDA City Campus who have come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Partnering the Demartini Institute, for the second time, was Angloplatinum. The company sponsored 47 students from Edumap College as one of its social responsibility projects.

The programme also provided a backdrop for a donation of laptop computers by Acer Africa to the Extranet Department of CIDA City Campus. Gracious recipient Simphiwe Vulindlu said the two Aspire notebook computers will assist them with their community outreach programmes. Acer Education Sector BU Manager, Eric Blom, said it was an absolute pleasure for their company to assist a college that does so much to advance this country's youth.

The Young Adults Inspired Destiny programme gives Dr Demartini an opportunity to work with young people to assist them in recognising their unique skills and genius and realising the power they have. It gives them the realisation that they have the door in front of them - they just need to go through it.

In this programme, attendees learn how to change their perceptions by asking a new set of questions which results in a new set of actions. They are taught powerful principles and methodologies to take command of their lives and find the inherent leader within themselves so they can lead the next generation.

Among many valuable messages Dr Demartini told the students: "It's not what happens to you, it's not what you have been through, it's not what you are going through, it's how you perceive your life, the actions you take and what you decide to do with your destiny."

There was a poignant end to the day when many of the students volunteered to voice their dreams for the future and expressed palpable gratitude to Dr Demartini for helping them to clarify their vision, believing in them and encouraging them to lead extraordinary lives. This spontaneous outpouring of appreciation brought tears to many of the attendee's eyes including the parents who were gathered at the end of the day waiting for their children who clearly did not want the day to end.
