Millennium Fellowship Project: Education from a New Perspective
'Education from a New Perspective' is a project which aims to groom young African intellectuals who are eager to change the world for the better. Within Nigeria, my team and I intend to achieve this by:
-Exposing young people to technological advancements in education and ways to leverage on them for success.
-Addressing the relationship between learning, effective leadership and success in the 21st century.
-Combining academic knowledge with technical expertise to teach and empower students from primary and secondary schools across Nigeria.
-Promoting youth capacity building, for the achievement of social impact goals and sustainable development.
-Providing one-on-one mentorship for students in both academics and other areas of life, to ensure their mental health, well-being and productivity.
-Exposing students to online resources, courses and programs related to their academic endeavours and other areas of interest.
-Addressing the benefits of applying technology to learning and ways to utilize them effectively.
