Millennium Fellowship Project: Equity in Education
Equity in Education is an initiative that aims to create awareness about lack of education equity across education boards. Specifically, the international boards and the federal board. The team will conduct surveys amongst students, teachers and policy makers.
1. The first step would identify the cause of the problem in education equity and how it impacts the lives of every individual thus moving into universities and later in professional world.
2. Once, the sessions between the two types of students are done and the common ground is established, then the solution strategy would be implemented, which entails: leadership, brainstorming, career-counselling activities, events and seminars to be held for the students to learn outside-the-box.
3. They will also run a social media campaign to increase the outreach and benefit those in other areas as well.
4. In addition, there will be a personal coaching of 4-6 students.
