“I have always felt the need to help and make a positive effect on people's lives on a wider range, therefore with eagerness I am waiting to grasp this opportunity of public service and self development. I would like to invest my years, especially university years, in working or improving myself in different fields as well as being of use to others and becoming a positively active person in society.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Students Helping Students
Many students in different school levels are in need for educational help, but some who live in poverty, have educational difficulties or have come or lived in dangerous or war areas, that caused them to stop their school education for several years, cannot afford special teaching or tutoring; Students Helping Students will be a program that provides the link between students needing tutoring and other older school or university students who have the capability, time, and willingness to help tutor those in need. Some of the measurable goals would be to create a meeting area between both sides to monitor the effectiveness and atmosphere of these weekly classes, help several students in different schools to achieve a noticeable improvement in their schools, and in addition guide them to reaching the capability of learning and improving educationally on their own therefore becoming more independent.
