- Participants: Participants in the 2014 TCYL held at Lycee Ivato
In 2014, Nantenaina Razafindradama and Fela Razafiarison began holding specially customized "Take Charge of Your Life!" classes for secondary school students at Lycée Ivato in the Antananarivo neighborhood that is also home to the airport. A huge number of young people applied to attend, but the class had to be limited to 12 participants.
The TCYL4Youth classes went very well, and now we wanted to learn if they had had a longer lasting impact on students' lives. Four of the 12, all of whom are pursuing further education, were able to join us for a follow-up meeting at their old school. As high school students they had already been exceptional, if a bit shy; now we were faced with poised young adults. What a pleasure it was to catch up with them!
All confirmed that the TCYL4Youth classes had helped them over the years, for example in their lives as university students.
Fela and Nantenaina then briefed them on the key new addition to the TCYL curriculum since their time together: the module on developing and strengthening a growth mindset.
In addition, the three facilitators met with Lycée Ivato's new principal, Mrs. Sendra Rajaonarison, to talk about how Journey to Excellence curriculum could be implemented in the school in the future. Exciting things are in planning!
