Summary

This project will support the development of a new after-school program in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the sustainability and growth of 3 current programs in New York, USA; Casablanca, Morocco; and Klamath (Yurok Tribe), California providing 60 high school students living in low-income communities with the opportunity to interact via videoconference and exchange their ideas and talents through the implementation of service projects positively affecting communities in the local and global level.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

From the low-income neighborhoods of Casablanca to the housing projects of the Bronx, there are numerous boundaries preventing teens from expanding their knowledge, having access to professional opportunities, and succeeding in a global society. Despite living in an interconnected world, youth remain excluded because of economical divides, lack of access to technology and discrepancies in public educational systems. This project will affect 60 high school students in Morocco, the US and Brazil.

How will this project solve this problem?

We provide each participants with the necessary tools to succeed in a globalized and competitive world. Our workshops prepare our participants for their: 1. professional development: college prep, resume & cover letter writing, proficiency of multimedia & digital tools, language instruction 2. global citizenship: analyzing and addressing local & global issues by directly connecting with peers who are facing the same issues through a different cultural lens, developing critical thinking skills

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will run in five different communities serving over 60 high school students around the world allowing them to use the different skills and competencies acquired throughout the program to actively participate and succeed in a more globally integrated world and positively develop their respective communities.
