Long story short
CBO was founded by two university students and currently holds seats for seven board members. The board receives input from three special advisers who assist with leadership development and organisational direction.
The organisation relies on students and individuals to volunteer their time and knowledge in order to help us achieve our goals. Currently, there are 10 volunteers working with and assisting the organisation within the tutoring programme. Five are from the University of Johannesburg while the other five are from Wits University.
The organisation works in partnership with the Wits University School Liaison office, the UJ Community Engagement Office and the WCGO.
We work with schools who are in need of study materials and any other academic resources which we aim to provide.
In addition, CBO believes in gender equality, hence the organisation focuses on both male and female learners. CBO aims to help learners obtain their full academic potential.
