Geographic areas served: Africa

Programs: We place qualified university students in African schools and institutions to lead experiential education projects for youth. Fellows spend the summer running projects alongside local educators in four project areas:

•Green Projects
•Creative Arts Projects
•Health Projects
•Tech-Ed Projects

Literacy Education

Each project area also seeks to develop literacy in innovative, interactive ways. Thus, functional English language skills will be taught through individual experiential education projects and through the use of creative media. This progressive literacy education will also be supplemented with more formal methods in order to maximize learning.

Core Project Objectives

1.Develop practical knowledge and skills in the four project areas and promote literacy
2.Encourage, develop and guide creativity for self-expression and personal development
3.Instill values of teamwork, leadership, community service, and self-respect

Core Project Values

•Creativity: In Project Design, Teaching Methodology and Learner Participation
•Experiential Learning Process: Engaged, Interactive, & Hands-on
•Practical Knowledge: Life Skills, Literacy & Values Education
•Local Relevance: Projects Reflect Local Needs
•Sustainability: Designed for Perpetuity

We believe that experiential education can empower youth in Africa—that innovative, hands-on, and locally relevant education initiatives form creative, confident, and conscientious youth who grow into adulthood with the ability and desire to play positive and active roles in their communities.
