YOUTH FUSION’S INNOVATIVE MODEL
Our educational and interdisciplinary programs are fascinating and have an ultimate objective: to have students persevere as they discover their passions and develop their skills.
Our model revolves around hiring full time Project Coordinators to organize regular weekly programming in class, afterschool and in other community settings. The Project Coordinators collaborate with teachers to develop classroom hands-on workshops to support the curriculum. In addition, they work with local organizations to nurture links between the school and the community.
We also support youth building local capacities by hiring and training students as animators who will develop their project management skills and facilitate activities.
The projects have shown to encourage youth’s participation and engagement in school by involving them in stimulating long term projects as well as reoccurring fun activities all year long. In addition, participation in our projects contributes to the development of of new interests and passions, as well as fostering self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment.
