Corporate Social Investment

Elex Academic Bookstore is a stern believer in giving back to the community and playing a vital part in the development of the community by establishing programs that are education-friendly and focus on building the development of the learners at no cost to them.

One of our interests in terms of giving back to the community is learners who are in primary level, secondary level and tertiary level.

  • Primary School Learners

 Laying the foundation in English and Mathematics is vital for young people in today’s job market. These subjects act as basic filters for employers. With that said, we hosts fun-filled, educational activities such as Spelling Bee Competitions and Maths Olympiads.

  • Secondary School Learners

Choosing which discipline to venture into after high school or choosing subjects that are relevant to the career path that a learner wishes to pursue can become a daunting task, however, we assists learners by providing Career Guidance so that learners can make informed decisions and become productive in their careers. Not only is Career Guidance crucial, it goes hand-in-hand with motivational speaking, we connects learners with Life Coaches that are able to inspire the learners to become the best in what they do.

  • Tertiary School Students

 Elex Academic Bookstore offers students the opportunity to undertake an internship that will provide in-depth experience that is relevant to the student’s field of study. If we do not not offer an internship that is related to the student’s field of study, we will then connect the student or students to the relevant employer.

In the spirit of World Book Day, we promotes and celebrates the love of reading by donating books to libraries and schools as well as colleges.
