Its mission is to educate and empower youths to be readily available and able to assist in helping meet the needs of their community. Goducate believes that the hope of a country lies in the children. The vision is that all Junior CDW Club members will actively participate in helping develop their families and their own communities and will train others to do likewise.

Members of Junior CDW Clubs are students in grades four, five, and six who are willing to participate and be trained. The officers and members of the clubs meet every Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. They do fun activities and learn the values of good leadership. They are mentored on how to handle activities, lead songs, organize programs, and be good leaders. They also learn livelihood skills such as making moringa powder and doing vermiculture.

During the School’s 43rd Recognition Program in the morning, BAES awarded a certificate of recognition to Goducate and to Goducate community development workers for their help to the school and its pupils. The 43rd commencement (graduation) exercises were held in the afternoon.
