Instructors

A big part of our success and ability to deliver our school programme lies in our team of instructors. We offer a well developed in-house Living Legends Instructor Programme for young leaders, who once qualified, are deployed into schools to present the Living Legends School Programme. Our team of instructors represent the communities they work in and have intimate knowledge of the challenges children face, making it easier for children to identify with them.

Ambassadors

The purpose of the Living Legends Brand Ambassador plan is building relationships with influencers who would like to contribute to broadening the horizons of South Africa’s youth through skills development.

Living Legends’ relationship with brand ambassadors is viewed as a reciprocal process that should suit and benefit both entities. Ultimately, the nature and extent of their involvement with Living Legends is a result of their own passions, preferences and availability.
