Building the Model 21st Century Youth Exchange Program? Piece of Cake.

Building the Model 21st Century Youth Exchange Program? Piece of Cake. | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

Like all exchange programs, YES has had its disappointments and heartbreaks. Tens of thousands of high quality applicants are turned away each year. Travel is expensive and visa processing in most YES countries is a long slog. The investment in the YES Program and other innovative programs, however, is critical. YES is clearly meeting the needs of young people in the region. YES is also building the people-to-people relationships so needed today. There is also a certain something about the program that is hard to pin down. Something extraordinary happens when tech-savvy, community-service driven young people from predominantly Muslim countries, several with special needs, live for a year in the homes of American families and study at American high schools. Something extraordinary happens to the host families.

A World of Possibilities

A World of Possibilities | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

Why 3D printing? Because it feels like magic. Kids are drawn to it; it quickly captures and inspires the imagination. But it also teaches kids to fail forward. Working with 3D printing illustrates what’s possible, and it makes invention accessible. And the global collaboration we foster between kids in the US and the developing world gives everything a real-life context with real-life urgency.

 

We’re seeing surprising results in the most unlikely of places. In Pakistan, a country that is seemingly hurtling towards either revolution or another military take-over, we are working with Farah Kamal, who has been working with iEARN Pakistan to change the narrative for students in Pakistan for decades.

While the rest of your American peers are seizing opportunities, breaking bread in other countries, building lasting connections and making life-long memories, we as African Americans aren’t even showing up to the table.  And what’s worse is most of us aren’t even aware there is a table to show up to.  For instance in the 2011-2012 academic year, only about 5% of all study abroad students were African American, whereas about 77% were White, and 8% were Latino*.
