John has founded six no-fee schools, the LEAP Schools, in marginalized communities across several provinces in South Africa where he has developed a learner-centered educational approach focusing on math and science education and an innovative teacher training and management system. A core component of the educational approach is to focus on social and emotional intelligence as a key lever for disadvantaged youth in South Africa to reach their full potential.
