CASE seeks to break the cycle of crime and violence
in which young people live by equipping community members
to reorganise and respond appropriately to both the causes
and effects of crime and violence in their communities.

Training & Personal Development

Community Care and Counselling

 Personal Development Course
 CASE runs a three-day Personal Development Course for Hanover Park  community members. There are two main objectives for the course:
1  To develop members of the community in their own personal growth and help  them to become more self-aware.
2  To identify potential volunteers to be trained as CASE counsellors at a later  stage in the year.
 Doing the course will give you a better idea of:
 Who you are?
 What skills and attitudes you need to improve your life?
 What makes you tick and what just ticks you off?
 What goes on in your relationships with other people?
 How to achieve your goals?
 For those who complete the course, we hope you will apply the skills you learn in your life and your relationships, and that you will find you are living a healthier, more fulfilled life.

 Counselling Course
1  Counsellors deliver daily trauma intervention and counselling to learners,  parents, teachers and the police.
2  Counsellors are also given ongoing training in specialist areas such as child abuse, rape and drug counselling.
   CASE also accepts university students as intern counsellors, placed in the  organisation to undergo training in trauma counselling related to  community violence.
   CASE counsellors and interns are supervised by a clinical psychologist.

 The volunteers are trained in the Big Moms Literacy Project which offers a  form of therapy through play while learning.

 Men's Project
 Men’s Mentoring Project looks at men’s issues and their impact on  community, violence and family breakdown.
 CASE believes that absent fathers and unhealthy male role models are key  causes of violence in communities.
 The Men’s Group meets weekly to workshop critical “Models of  Manhood”.
 The Men’s Project includes wilderness camps, workshops, arts and crafts sessions and  a support group.


 Through developing youth leadership and guiding young leaders in  implementing projects, the community will be exposed to healthy positive role  models.
 Young people today seldom get opportunities to really be involved in shaping  their communities.
 CASE believes that young people have the desire, insights and talents to  address their community’s problems.
 Youth Leaders are given skills through training to lead projects within the CASE  Community Development Programme.

 Training and Mentoring of Youth Leaders
 Youth leaders are given additional training in life-skills teaching, crime  prevention, trauma, stress management, sexuality and HIV/AIDS.
 Their training takes place in the form of workshops, camps, activities and  events throughout the year.
 Youth are required to participate in mentoring children and other youth in  structured activities in the CASE Community Development Programme.
 Leadership training camp: is designed to train the youth to get involved in  their community and to join CASE Youth-In-Action
 The Girl Power Camp: is for grade 7 girls only, to mentor them and assist with  the difficult transition from primary to high school.

 FACE Aftercare Volunteer Training
 A group of volunteers (older adults and out of school youth) are trained in  facilitating an after-school programme for children in primary schools.
 The FACE programme runs at four primary schools which are accessible to  children from all of the 10 primary schools in the area
 The training includes, personal development, child development, teamwork,  activities for children, conflict resolution and programme development.
