Online YIF & SHOWCASE

2021 Program: Advantages of Online Format Spaced Over 6 Months

YIF’s mission is to empower youth with the tools to make their projects real. To do this, YIF works directly with teachers to provide all the scaffolding needed to successfully foster impactful student initiatives in support of the UN Global Goals.

 

FORMAT

5 Sessions of 3.5 hours

  • 4 Forum Sessions: December 2020 – April 2021
  • 1 Showcase with Mentor Meet-up

HOW IT WORKS

Forums will include group peer critique, as well as case study experiences from Youth Social entrepreneurs and drill-down activities with guidelines from Experts (specialists, NGOs, charitable foundations, and the UN Community).

The Online Format

  • Fosters engagement across student changemakers over full program development
  • Allows for more detailed feedback on each stage of the project’s development

The Showcase culminates in connection between each project with a mentor who is an expert in their field.

FORUM FOCUS

  • Peer critiques of projects
  • Youth Social Entrepreneurs tell their story on the forum’s topics and answer questions
  • Technical Expert leads drill- down activities on topics and answers questions from students on their work. This work is accompanied by YIF staff based upon student independent work provided in advance of forum
