Mission: World Genesis Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization committed to a mission to "leave no child without hope for the future." The foundation works in cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and other partners throughout the world in an effort to create opportunities for youth in areas where opportunities may be limited or unavailable today.
Results: Just this past year some of our projects included a Robotics Project and Competition (Earth Rover) which involved multiple Universities in the Ukraine, Moldova and Romania and reached over 10,000 youth. We also have been active with a very unique Learning Academy “Atlantykron” going on its 24th year this academy brings 400 youth, professors, and experts in their field, together for a 10 day learning program in a natural environment. World Genesis Foundation joined UNESCO Center for Peace as well as other partners, supports and friends, in Washington “First Lady’s Youth Infusion Summit.” This program brought some of the First Ladies from Africa together with youth in creating a platform to discuss ideas and solutions, bridging minds and generations. World Genesis Foundation partnered with UNESCO Center for Peace to launch JumpStart, a project creating opportunities for youth to work on live projects with the guidance of professors and experts, jumpstarting the missions of not-for -profit organizations and creating internet solutions. We also connected with local supporters in Arizona for a fundraising project, “Bracelets of Hope,” with much success.
Target demographics: Our focus, apart from the alleviation of all kinds of suffering, is to create opportunities for the moral, physical and intellectual development of youth in areas of the world where opportunities are limited or do not exist today.
Geographic areas served: Today we have active programs and partners in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.
Programs: World Genesis Foundation has active programs and participates in projects in Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa and America. We focus on educational programs that foster the building and the development of skills in areas of leadership, teambuilding, teamwork, project development and management, creative problem solving, divergent thinking and communication. Project areas include: *Natural and Social Sciences *Mathematics *Technology/Robotics *Arts/Music *Cultural Awareness *The Humanities *Communication/ /Journalism/Media

I was introduced to World Genesis Foundation and asked if I would teach a class. Little did I know at the time that it would change the course of my life, that was seven years ago. One of the amazing things about WGF is that everyone that volunteers truly gives from their heart whether they are sharing time, materials, experience or their expertise. It is a collective effort with many wonderful friends, supporters and partners that makes it possible to create educational opportunity and hope for so many youth. I attended my first youth program "Atlantykron Summer Academy of Learning" I went there to give and to teach but I received and I learned.
