The idea behind Kalsom Academy is to create an on-going learning platform for all Projek Kalsom Motivational Camp beneficiaries from each year following the completion of the camp.
This allows them to continue receiving English, leadership and motivational guidance from the movement while having their own space to share and spread what they have learnt from all Kalsom programmes to their peers in a way that it polishes their leadership skills and improves their confidence in their ability to help and inspire others.
This programme consists of two main components: English Exploration monthly visits and Metamorphosis.
- With the guidance from Malaysian-based facilitators, English Exploration involves online communication and physical monthly visit to respective Projek Kalsom schools. It aims to:
- Equip beneficiaries with academic and general knowledge as well as English mastery to prepare them for a self-sustaining future.
Build confident and presentable personalities who are self-driven and independently capable and passionate in seeking knowledge
Fifth paragraph: The concepts of knowledge-sharing and peer guidance define the values of Metamorphosis component. The beneficiaries will be guided on ways to share their knowledge with their peers through various means. It aims to:
- Initiate a learning platform for students to share their knowledge and to inspire each other to achieve their full potential
- Train leadership skills and inculcate sense of responsibility towards themselves and the community
Currently, this programme is being conducted by the Malaysian Chapter in the state of Selangor and will run until the 30th October 2017.
