Vision and Mission

To see youth making informed decisions by increasing access to free education in after-school programs.

What We Do

Outliers is a movement of people working together to empower youth in disadvantaged communities.

In partnership, we set up after-school programs where students can access free quality education.

We help our partners run after-school programs by:

1. Mentoring them as they create safe spaces for learning.

2. Mobilizing resources and training tutors to provide free academic support.

3. Increasing access to mentors and opportunities for career development by building support networks.

As connectors, we rely heavily on our growing social capital to meet the needs of our partners.

Join the movement to increase access to quality education for those who need it most.

Partners

Our partners run 58 after-school programs across greater Cape Town,
usually between 3pm and 6pm during the week, or on Saturday mornings.

About

Outliers is about free education because commodified education in South Africa continues to perpetuate injustice in disadvantaged communities. Though every young person can influence positive change, the absence of access to a good education in many communities limits their capacity to develop agency and make informed decisions.

Both Heidi Segal and Laura Singh had a desire to respond to this injustice by disrupting the system and providing free quality education in disadvantaged communities. In 2009, they started their first after-school program, drawing on their social connections to facilitate the space. In 2014, they founded Outliers to support the growing number of after-school programs in their network.

At Outliers, we are committed to helping our partners fulfil their visions by supporting them as best we can. We firmly believe that each of our partners knows what works best in their context and our support of them is guided by their expressed needs. Outliers relies heavily on civil society to meet the needs of our partners. We look forward to hearing from you as you join the movement to equal access to education for all.
