What sets us apart?
enke: Make Your Mark (“enke”) empowers young leaders (aged 15 – 26) to make their mark on their community, their country & their world. Our youth programs focus on the following three things:
- Building social capital: both by increasing the breadth & diversity of a participant’s network and, most importantly, by increasing a participant’s ability to recognise value in their existing networks and the confidence to be able to unlock that value;
- Developing non-cognitive skills: otherwise known as soft skills or social and emotional skills, at enke we are focused on the following skills – resilience, agency, curiosity, gratitude, confidence, surfacing and testing assumptions, reflection for learning (meta-cognition);
- Increasing social responsibility: At enke we believe young people are an under-tapped resource for addressing the world’s social issues. In particular, youth are uniquely placed to innovate for social change. We support young people to take action, developing their own ideas. We see them have real impact. We also see their enke community action projects, that program participants initiate, as a first step in a life-long journey of social responsibility.
