In the rural villages of Belize, many students lack access to educational resources essential to learning. In response, SOS has teamed up with the local community and another Canadian not-for-profit organization to make learning resources available through innovative technologies, enabling e-learning even in regions without internet access.  Itinerary Highlights Participants will support the launch and implementation of this program through the following activities:
  • Organizing workshops with local youth, teachers, and policy makers to exchange cross-cultural perspectives on education, digital literacy, and human rights
  • Creating educational resources based on key curriculum topics
  • Serving as classroom assistant to support the delivery of curriculum, and offering training on the use of technology
  • Conducting quantitative and qualitative research to inform ongoing program evaluations 
Through this combination of activities, participants will be able to learn about designing, implementing and evaluating new social development programs. 

This program is ideal for any one interested in the use of technology within teaching, social development, and not-for-profit management.
