How can I gain the skills needed for success without giving up what I want?

InSite’s modules are designed for secondary and college students. Each module focuses on one key area which have all been identified as the top needed skills for a meaningful and fulfilling life all around. It is our aim that students feel confident in who they are and the contribution they make. The content meet up sessions are between 4-6 hours in total. The other crucial component are the Action Sundays where we all come together and volunteer, putting what we’ve learned into action as we come alongside others who need support.

How do I fulfil school requirements that's not tedious and boring?

InSite agents are treated as co-partners in each module. They are designed to give the tools needed to be a valuable contributor. InSite sees each agent as a valued and needed part of InSite. If you've been wanting to stretch yourself within the realm of seeing your impact grow and develop, this is your opportunity to live forward with intention. Does this sound like CAS, IB students? Probably not, but you'll fulfil CAS as a natural outcome of being a part of InSite. 

How to do InSite without wasting time on CAS?

Here's the deal. We all have 24 hours in a day and we all decide how to use those precious hours. InSite is designed so that you have the maximum benefit for the time invested. Every single hour you designate for InSite will fulfil at least one of the CAS learning outcomes. InSite provides the structure so that you can focus on what matters and not wasting your time trying to figure out what to do. 

How to fundraise without being desperate and needy?

Fundraising usually brings up feelings of fear and seems impossible at the first glance. We get that. We believe that fundraising:

  • gives people who want to help a solution.

  • gives experience in how to give a pitch.

  • increases your self confidence as you reach a goal that seems a little out of your reach.

  • provides opportunities for others to support you in pursuing your goals.

  • gives you skills and tools in communication, event planning, budgeting, and public speaking.

  • creates opportunities for you to be resourceful and creative.

To accomplish this, InSite provides the tools you need to fundraise in a way that is authentic and natural for you, that excites your network in wanting to contribute and gets you to your goal.

Is it safe to go to South Africa?

InSite is fully aware of the risks of traveling. We stay in secured locations, with locked gates and added security, when needed. We hire drivers and travel with our local partners while we are there. The students are never alone or allowed to be out without adult supervision. When in the settlements, we are in a group and we all walk and work in groups of at least 3 people. It’s one of the reasons we have training sessions and work on team building. We build a high sense of trust between us to ensure that we will all do our part for the good of the group.

Why fundraise?

Being active in the raising of funds gets you more connected with the cause and needs of those in South Africa. Fundraising teaches the value of money, how to give a pitch, handle rejection, builds resilience and confidence. It provides an opportunity for more people to participate and provides the resources for InSite to contribute to projects in South Africa.
