Streetlight Schools x Leadership Coaching
Streetlight schools is a holistic, creative, and inquiry-driven school in inner-city Johannesburg. They aim to improve access to quality education in some of the most undeserved communities in South Africa through innovative approaches to education and partnerships within the education space.
Around the beginning of 2017, Streetlight Schools went through a significant leadership change and found themselves grappling with on-boarding a new CEO, David Fu. To help with this transition, David decided to work with Goodbets for leadership coaching.

4.0 Schools x Fundraising strategy & Support
4.0 Schools wants to build the future of schools, together. They connect coaches and invests in people to test new learning spaces and tools with students and families in their local communities. The do this with three stages of fellowships—the essentials fellowship centered around defining a problem in a community and testing how to solve it, the tiny fellowship that asks entrepreneurs to run a pilot to validate their idea, and find your pathway a partnership with other organizations and downstream programs to continue to grow your idea. On top of this, members and alumni within 4.0 get access to a national community and resources alike.
The organization grew its fellowships and community over time, and around eight years after its founding, they transitioned their COO—Hassan Hassan—to CEO of the organization. Moving into this role, Hassan knew that he would have to take over the organization’s ambitious fundraising efforts, something he knew wasn’t his strong suit. For support with fundraising, and for leadership coaching Hassan and 4.0 turned to Goodbets Group.
