OUR STORY: History

Imagine Scholar has changed so much over the years. I feel very proud that my ideas and experiences helped make it the program it is today.

Imagine Scholar’s roots date back to 2009. It was a collaboration between one young American named Corey Johnson and five students from Nkomazi. Together this group recognized youth from rural, under-resourced areas were unfairly restricted from reaching their full potential. They wanted to create a pathway for motivated youth to excel in university, succeed professionally, and effect sustainable social change. Today, our young leaders are transforming their communities in unprecedented fashion.
