Grade 11 Empowerment Project (supported by Investec)

With the sudden shift away from physical events around the globe and the high growth and adoption in education technology, the JuniorTukkie Team is currently working hard in establishing an online platform/model that would include all JT projects/events that were previously presented physically. In doing so, we hope to be able to provide opportunities with significant benefits to more learners and prospective students.

Dates of virtual JuniorTukkie events for 2021 will be published soon.
