Am I a Leader? (Leadership Development Programme)
Softskills Consultants through its
Youth Generation®  Team have piloted the first of its life skills programmes to learners in the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) and the Western Cape Education Department (WCED). The training covers assertiveness, leadership, communication skills, conflict resolution and peer pressure and was piloted to learners from the disadvantaged community of Delft in Cape Town.  This community has been ravaged by crime and gangsterism and the programme was aimed at keeping the youth occupied with positive initiates such as sport, community re-building and academic achievement.

Courses are run during the school holidays. Contact Youth Development

Youth and Community Initiatives

Martin Stevens conducts this training and many of the learners are sponsored by Martin onto the training.

        * Entrepreneurial Skills
        * Leadership Development Programme

NEED HELP?          NEED HELP?          NEED HELP?          NEED HELP?

Suicide...is never the answer!!!!

Suicide is final...and once you decide to do it, there is no way to say it was a mistake. you cannot undo it...its final.

And suicide is being selfish to your parents, your best friend, your little brother or sister who adores you so much, in fact to everyone you know cos they really do love you. Do you really want to miss out in those wonderful opportunities waiting for you, studying further or finding a career and a job, earning your first salary, buying your first car and moving into your own Fflat?

Sometimes life throws us a curve ball, but we must be able to stand up to the challenge;
- maybe you feel life isn't fair
- maybe be you want to get back at someone,
- maybe you are mad at your parents, teachers, brothers and/or sisters boy/girl friend
- maybe you think you haven't succeeded
- maybe you are feeling the effects of peer pressure from your friends
- maybe you are pregnant and feel alone

For all of the above, suicide in NEVER the answer and never will be the answer, whatever your problem may be, so talk to a counsellor
(To find a counsellor, click here). and you will realise that you still have a lot of fun, happy days ahead. Sure, there will be days which aren't that okay, but we all have those. Winners rise above that and winner behaviour starts with you thinking positively about yourself.

Find a positive attitude and live it. When you think like a winner, you become a winner.
(Click here to read The 12 Points on Attitude)

THINK BACK TO A HAPPY TIME IN YOUR LIFE. NOW THINK FORWARD TO EVEN MORE HAPPIER TIMES AHEAD. SITTING WITH FRIENDS, DANCING, LAUGHING AND BEING A TEENAGER.

                                SUICIDE...PLEASE DON'T EVEN CONSIDER IT.

KIDS AND SPORTS

If your child does not like sport...

Sports teaches self-confidence, co-ordination and general fitness and children learn to work with others in teams. But some children are not natural athletes and they may say - directly or indirectly - that they just don't like sports. What then?

  • Your child may not be suited to team sports or a specific team, especially if they are bullied.

    - The solution may involve sticking it out, trying an individual sport or changing teams.
     
  • Poor skills will frustrate your child, especially when new to a sport.

    - Include fun, pressure-free practise at home and give your support and encouragement.
     
  • It’s not all about winning.

    - Younger children (>10) may prefer a less competitive coach or league.
     
  • Wrong sport?

    -
    Introduce your child to a variety of sports and activities. let them choose their favourite and then support them.
     
  • SUPPORT means being there for their games, asking about the development, taking them to practice and helping them with advice on the sport.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)                                                                                                                                            
                                                 

Growing up
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I’M GROWING UP AND COPING WELL. OTHER TIMES I JUST LOSE IT.
Nobody is perfect! So, relax, you’re excused for having off days and being in a foul mood once in a while. Life is about living and experiencing, though if you feel it all gets a bit much, try talking to a friend or parent or start writing down your feelings.
 

MY FEELINGS CHANGE ALL THE TIME. I’M SURE PEOPLE THINK I’M STRANGE.
Listen up! We’re at the age when our hormones are doing the phunky dance and getting us all worked up. Boys are dancin’ to the tune of TESTOSTERONE and all the fine ladies out there are jivin’ to OESTROGEN, the hormones that are making us passionate, luuurving, and wild! So, yeah, we’re on an emotional rollercoaster, and the best thing about being on a rollercoaster for the first time is experiencing how you feel after every dip, turn and drop! So take the ride and learn – find out more about this cool experience … you! And, hey, remember, even if you think you’re a bit weird, you’re on your way to finding yourself – in a weird and wacky world. Just keep your head!
 
 
WHY DO WE GET PIMPLES?
I can tell you, but you ain’t gonna like it! Pimples can be caused by those emotional stresses and of course those jivin’ hormones! Hormones make the glands produce too much oil (sebum), they get blocked with all that oil and that’s when we get those nasty zits. So, you’re probably gonna get ’em! But hey, with the proper diet and exercise you should be able to limit the explosion …
 

Sexual Health
HOW IS HIV TRANSMITTED FROM ONE PERSON TO THE NEXT?
When blood, pre-seminal fluid, semen, vaginal fluid, or breast milk from an infected person enters the body of an uninfected one.
 
Transmission can be through:
- Sexual intercourse (anal, vaginal or oral sex) with an infected person
- Sharing needles or injection equipment with a drug user who is infected
- From HIV –infected women to babies before or during birth, or through breast feeding after birth
- Some health-care workers have become infected after being stuck with needles containing HIV-infected blood or after infected blood came in contact with the worker’s open cut
 
 
back to top of page

   CAN AN OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTION BE TRANSMITTED FROM A PERSON WITH AIDS TO A PERSON WITHOUT AIDS?
Opportunistic infections are not a threat to a healthy immune system. They are a threat to HIV infected people because HIV has damaged their immune systems.
Patients with severe underlying illness are also susceptible to opportunistic infections.
 
 
CAN HIV BE TRANSMITTED BY SALIVA, TEARS, SWEAT OR EAR WAX?
Contact with saliva or tears have never been shown to result in transmission of HIV.
HIV has not been recovered from the sweat or ear- wax of HIV infected persons.
 
 
CAN HIV BE TRANSMITTED BY WOUND-TO-WOUND CONTACT?
Although theoretically possible, it is highly unlikely given the improbability of such a scenario and the small concentration of virus that is likely to be present.
Very few have reported this as a possible source of infection.
However, persons with open wounds who are likely to have occupational contact with blood and other potentially infectious body fluids should comply with universal precautions for the prevention of HIV infection.
 
 
CAN I GET HIV FROM OPEN-MOUTH KISSING?
Open-mouth kissing is considered a low risk activity for HIV transmission. However, it could allow HIV to pass from an infected person to a partner through cuts or sores in the mouth.
 
 
CAN HIV BE TRANSMITTED FROM ANIMALS TO HUMANS?
No. HIV is uniquely human disease. Only certain monkey species have developed anti-bodies to HIV. Other retroviruses besides HIV infect animals including sheep, horses, goats, monkeys and cats. For instance cats can develop the feline leukaemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus.
 
 
ARE PATIENTS IN A DENTIST OR DOCTOR’S OFFICE AT RISK OF GETTING HIV?
Although HIV transmission is possible in health care settings it is extremely rare.
Medical experts emphasise that the careful practice of infection control procedures, including universal precautions, protects patients and health care providers from possible HIV infection in these settings.

back to top of page

CAN I GET HIV FROM GETTING A TATTOO OR THROUGH BODY PIERCING?
One may get infected if instruments contaminated with blood are either not sterilized or disinfected or are used inappropriately between clients.
Instruments that are intended to penetrate the skin should be used once, then disposed of or thoroughly cleaned and sterilized.
 
 
CAN I GET INFECTED WITH HIV WHILE PLAYING SPORTS?
The very low risk of transmission during sports participation would involve sports with direct body contact in which bleeding might be expected to occur (such as boxing). Universal precautions and infection control procedures are followed in such cases.

Be Wise!!!! Condomise!!!

WHY DO HIV POSITIVE PARTNERS NEED TO WEAR CONDOMS?
To reduce the risk of super-infection with an HIV strain that has become resistant to antiretroviral drugs.
To avoid infection with other STI's
To avoid passing HIV to others


DOES CIRCUMCISION AFFECT THE RISK OF CONTRACTING HIV?
Most studies have shown that men who are not circumcised appear to be somewhat more likely to be infected through heterosexual sex and are likely to pass infection to others.
Not being circumcised also seems to make a man more likely to become infected with HIV when exposed to other STI’s.
However it has not been conclusively shown whether other factors (e.g. cultural practices) besides circumcision may be the ones responsible for these differences in infection.

 
CAN A PERSON GET HIV FROM PERFORMING ORAL SEX?
Yes. Blood, semen, pre-seminal and vaginal fluids can all contain the virus. Cells in the lining of the mouth may carry HIV into the lymph nodes or the body.
The risk increases:
- If you have cuts or sores around or in your mouth or throat
- If your partner ejaculates in your mouth
- If your partner has another Sexually Transmitted infection


WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN HIV AND OTHER STIS?
Having STI’s increases a person’s risk of becoming infected with HIV.
For STI’s that cause irritation of the skin, breaks or sores it becomes easier for HIV to enter the body during sexual intercourse.
Even when an STI causes not breaks or open sores the infection can stimulate an immune response that can make HIV transmission more likely.
If an HIV infected person is also infected with another STI she/he is three to five times more likely than other HIV infected people to transmit HIV through sexual contact.

back to top of page
 
CAN I GET HIV FROM SOMEONE PERFORMING ORAL SEX ON ME?
Yes. If your partner has HIV they can pass the infection from their mouth to the vagina, penis, the anus or directly into the body through small cuts or open sores.
If you choose to have oral sex:
- Use a latex condom on the penis
- If your partner is allergic to latex, a plastic (polyutherane) condom can be used
- Use a latex barrier (such as dental-dam or a cut-open condom that makes a square) between the mouth and the vagina
 
 
WHAT'S A WET DREAM AND WHY DO I HAVE THEM?
In your sleep, you’ll have an erection (your penis will get hard and “stand to attention”) and you will cum (ejaculate). This usually comes with a very sexy dream – hence the name “wet dream”. Guy’s you can pretty much bank on this happening to you at puberty. Don’t freak out! It’s perfectly normal and it won’t happen as often when you get older.
 
 
I’M 15 AND I STILL HAVEN’T STARTED MY PERIOD? SHOULD I BE WORRIED?
Girl's bodies change at different times and at different rates. Don’t worry if your period hasn’t come yet – it will happen sooner or later, there’s no two ways about it.

12 AWESOME POINTS ON ATTITUDE

  1.        It is your attitude at the beginning of a task more than anything else that will determine your success or failure.

    2.       It is your attitude towards life that will determine life’s attitude towards you.  Despite what many people believe, life plays no favourites.

   
3.       You control your attitude.  If you are negative it is because you have decided to be negative, not because of other people and circumstances.

   
4.       Act as if you have a good attitude.  Remember actions trigger feelings, just as feelings trigger actions.

   
5.       Before a person can achieve the kind of results that he wants, they must first become that person.  They must then think, walk, talk, act and      
              conduct themselves in all  their affairs, as would the person they wish to become.


   
6.       Treat everybody as the most important person in the world.

    7.       Attitudes are based on assumptions.  In order to change one’s attitude, one must first change one’s assumptions.

   
8.       Develop the attitude that there are more reasons why you should succeed than reasons why you should fail.

   
9.       When you are faced with a problem, adopt the attitude that you can and will solve it.

    10.     We become what we think about.  Control your thoughts and you will control your life.

 
   11.      Radiate the attitude of confidence and well-being, of a person who knows where he/she is going.  You will then find good things happening to
              you right away
.

    12.     In order to develop a good attitude, take charge first thing in the morning. 
              Do you say, “Good Morning Lord” or “Good Lord it’s morning”
