Millennium Fellowship Project: #NAME?
The project focuses on developing a program in which children and teenagers can get familiarized with current social topics in an aim to educate youth to have a broader knowledge of what makes a better society.
The project begins with the development of a manual in which volunteers can find the necessary materials for each topic that will be included in the program as well as the activities and workshops that will get done during the sessions
Once the manual is completed and the volunteers are gathered, the sessions will take place in different organizations where there can be adaptations to the program according to the targeted audience.
As for the results, we will be observing the first sessions in order to give feedback to the volunteers and so that they can give us ideas to improve the program. We will also try to establish a direct communication with the target audience to see what their opinions are and to see if the program is reaching its goals.
