MISSION, VISION & VALUES
What we stand for
To take "ordinary" kids (including "youth-at-risk") and provide them with the resources to develop skills, through the medium of Circus Arts, that will develop them as young leaders, good citizens, ambassadors for South Africa, and make them eminently employable.
To provide innovative cutting edge professional training and entertainment thereby providing opportunities for youth to fulfil their potential and contributing to the growth of a healthy nation.
To form mutually beneficial partnerships with our funders and others who wish to be associated with Zip Zap.
By 2023 Zip Zap is maximising positive life-changing social impact on South African youth through its professional circus hub which delivers world-class performances to inspire audiences nationally and internationally.
Zip Zap creates a platform for students (and partners) with a chance to turn dreams into reality providing an open door to a fun, safe place, with a sense of family and a clear focus to shape their confidence, skills and worth, critical to moving on as a new South Africa.
Our values give us the ability to live what we have learned, and believe in what we do.
Accountability - We take responsibility for our actions and own our mistakes. We are solutions-orientated, embrace a culture of trust and we ask for help.
Respect- We respect ourselves, each other, our beneficiaries, our stakeholders, Zip Zap property and the Zip Zap brand.
Joy - We love what we do and do what we love. We consider it a privilege to bring happiness to our beneficiaries and stakeholders. This joyfulness underpins all we do. We work hard, we celebrate our successes and have fun doing it.
Family- We are a Zip Zap family. We share a sense of belonging and are connected by our common cause. At Zip Zap we strive to be a home that is welcoming, cohesive and safe. Our home is disciplined and has healthy boundaries.
Honesty - We are consistently true, transparent, real, fair and honourable. We always do the right thing (even when nobody is watching).
