Brief Need Statement
Many students graduate from high school each year ill prepared for the challenges that the world beyond brings. Many of our high school leaders lack the skills and knowledge necessary for the pursuit of higher education and are also unaware of the numerous opportunities available to for such pursuit.
The Bright Project is a social impact program committed to creating opportunity for every interested individual to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for the pursuit of higher education. The initiative helps mentor and support high school students as they develop into effective leaders capable of succeeding in diverse, multicultural and challenging university environments. My project has impact 300 senior high school students through organising four school seminar series and two leadership weekend retreat programs. My work is advancing the Sustainable Development Goal four (SDG 4) and the United Nations Academic Impact principle five (UNAI 5).
Our core programs include school seminar series, weekend leadership retreats, young leaders fellowship and school health awareness program. To meet up with the demand of modern leadership and mentees expectations, there will be constant “mentoring the mentors” program for the mentors within our community
