Organization description:
Schools without borders (SWB) is unique youth-led organization that makes education and learning more accessible for young people. We view real learning not merely as a classroom experience, but rather as a life-long journey, inspired by meaningful experiences and sustained by strong partnerships. SWB plays an integral intermediary and supportive role in grassroots community development at home and around the world. We support young people to create their own platforms for change, and build the communities they want to live in. 1. Arts-based and cultural initiatives that help young people connect with their identity; 2. Intensive leadership training that provides the tools and hands-on experiences for youth to take on their own projects; 3. Support and mentorship to create strong and sustainable platforms for change; 4. Institutional change through partnerships with community leaders, funding agencies, policy makers and the corporate sector
