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 and the US.

Solution

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

Long-Term Impact

The project will run in three 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.
