TADA’s impact up to now?

From school year 2020-2021 onwards, 676 teenagers go to one of TADA’s weekend schools every Saturday and 587 alumni are being coached. That means that TADA’s goal to make a difference in the lives of more than 1000 teenagers has been reached.

Over the years, TADA’s indirect impact has also enlarged like an oil slick. Many adults got inspired by TADA’s approach. Regularly, they change the lives of vulnerable youngsters by launching similar activities themselves.

initiatives inspired by TADA

 

Kiddybuild is a private initiative form the BESIX-group. Through Kiddybuild, the construction company BESIX invites every year hundreds of children from socially vulnerable neighbourhoods on their wharfs. They participate to interactive and practical workshops in order to make them discover the world of construction. TADA supported BESIX in the set-up of Kiddybuild.

 

Primary school Paviljoen, with as principal (former TADA-colleague) Sven Moens, is a school in Schaerbeek that is “society-oriented” just like TADA. Digitalisation, entrepreneurship and the development of the identity of each kid  – through connection with the reel world – is central in their pedagogic approach. Paviljoen, just as TADA, attaches also a lot of  importance to the “growth mindset” and the principals of “solution focused approach” such as developed by Ilfaro in Belgium. Till today TADA works in close collaboration with Sven Moens in order to develop this approach and these values in his school.

On request, TADA also gives practical, interactive workshops or keynotes about our way of working on diverse themes such as for example the themes of “the growth mindset”, “the solution focused approach” and “the importance of  positive relations and connections in the development of a human being”.

Non-profit organisations such as TAJO and Ikigai – L’école du samedi are weekend schools inspired by TADA and IMC Weekendschool.

Both initiatives are independent but there is an informal collaboration. We wish the founders in Ghent and Bordeaux a lot of success! Want to know more? E-mail us: info@toekomstatelierdelavenir.com.

 

Many of our (former) colleagues testify that being part of the TADA-team is an intense experience that enriches you a lot. Some of them who are currently working in the classical educational system, explain how TADA has inspired them in their daily jobs at the traditional school. Indeed: plenty of the elements specific to the TADA-approach can also be applied elsewhere, such as in a regular classroom.
