Target Life specializes in facilitating a process for post-school youth to discover their calling and purpose in life, find their true identity, unlock their full potential, acquire essential skills, ignite their passions and forge perseverance and, in so doing, provides them with the opportunity to make a significant impact on the world around them. The key to both happiness and success is to develop a balanced life, therefore, we focus on nurturing body, soul and spirit, thus assisting young people to deal with their past, present and future. A year’s investment in the Target Life programme can ensure a more stable and meaningful future for themselves as individuals, their future families and the corporate environment alike.
