App helps smokers to Kick.it
The Leadership Onkaparinga program mentors up to 20 local aspiring leaders over six month periods and equips them with the skills they need to start their own ventures or lead community projects.
“It’s about encouraging active citizenship and building sustainable leadership capacity,” Project Officer Joanna Giannes says.
2014 graduate James Stewart developed the confidence and connections he needed to pursue his goal of creating Kick.it – “the best app in the world to help smokers kick the habit” – through the program.
“It reconfirmed that I’m an entrepreneur at heart and was basically the catalyst for getting me back into entrepreneurship after some less successful attempts,” James says.
