COMPANY OVERVIEW

Primestars Marketing develops programmes for high school learners from disadvantaged communities which use cinemas nationally as “Educational Theatres of Learning”. Topics include Matric Math & Science Revision, Career Guidance, Financial Literacy, Leadership development and Entrepreneurship amongst others. They are designed to help South African youth develop the skills needed to participate more meaningfully in the economy and are conducive to building a sustainable environment in which business can operate. To date Primestars Marketing has reached over 150,000 secondary school learners nationally.

This unique medium offers learners the opportunity to be taught in a fun and experiential manner and allows for great brand exposure, as well as talent identification. By supporting these programmes companies have the means of giving back to communities by educating disadvantaged learners in a safe and neutral environment outside of schools.

Venues:

We use 15 Ster-Kinekor Cinema complexes in 9 Provinces as “Educational Theatres of Learning” for learners in Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12;
Achievement:

Since inception, over 500 000 learners have attended our different programmes nationwide;
The success of our programmes – spanning over a decade – is owed to our public/private sector partnerships (with your organisation playing a vital role) and it is through these mutually beneficial partnerships that our programmes, once again, delivered educational and entrepreneurial empowerment to over 80 000 secondary school learners in 2016.

This unique medium offers learners the opportunity to be taught in a fun and experiential manner and allows for valuable brand exposure, as well as talent identification and CSI/SED opportunities.

By supporting these programmes, both Public and Private Sector organizations have the means of giving back to communities by educating learners from under resourced schools in a safe and neutral environment.
