The course of study for the group is "Breezes of Confirmation," prepared by the William Mmutle Masetlha Foundation in Zambia. The aim of the course is to enhance the powers of expression of junior youth by strengthening their literacy skills and helping them to articulate ideas with some degree of precision and clarity. Virtues development and cooperative game playing are essential elements of the program, intended to provide them with important tools to guide their decision-making and actions as they mature into young adults.
