The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“Nowadays, we are living in a world where education is becoming essential to survive, but sadly many kids are unable to receive this necessary education. That's why me, as a person lucky enough to be a college student and having this opportunity to study, I find a responsibility in helping others and especially kids to be able to study and live their life better and to have a bright future.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Students helping students
This project consists of students from university or high school that volunteer in their free time to tutor students who have learning difficulties, didn’t afford proper education before, or came from areas where there is war. The project further expands to contain not only tutoring for basic educational classes such as sciences and literature but also arts, crafts, technology, and programming; therefore this project is based on students helping other students expand their knowledge, education, and talents.
First, we will spread the project in our university, then we will search for different schools to find children who have difficulties and need tutoring as well as those outside schools. Our success can be measured based on the number of students or children being helped, and most importantly on the progress and the educational improvement and the knowledge gained by those students and children during these months.
