The Mamelodi Initiative is a tutoring program that is powered by a unique partnership between South African and US university student volunteers. During summer and winter breaks, these students link up as co-teachers for grade 7 through 12 high school learners. The Mamelodi Initaitive focuses on helping Mamelodi high school learners qualify for university acceptance. The initiative has proved to be a game changer for thousands of township kids since it began in 2008.
In January 2015, the Mamelodi Initaitive is partnering with Cru to plant a new location that will serve the kids of Mamelodi West.
