WISE is pleased to announce the start of the 2016/17 Learners’ Voice recruitment campaign.
The WISE Learners’ Voice Program brings the perspectives of young people to the challenge of rethinking education, and equips them to take on leading roles in their fields and in the world of education. The Program is based on the idea that when learners are co-creators of their learning environments, they become active participants invested as stakeholders in the progress of their communities. The Program focuses on building knowledge of education, social entrepreneurship, leadership, and communication skills.
The Learners participate in the annual WISE Summit and in two intensive residential sessions delivered by expert faculty. These are supplemented by practical workshops and various online and on-site activities. In a key component of the Program, the learners form teams to conceive and design grass-roots projects that address critical education challenges. Selected projects, developed throughout the year, are presented at the following WISE Summit.
Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 25
In addition to this, the WISE Learners’ Voice Program requires your individual commitment, attendance and full participation in two mandatory residential sessions. The first will take place from January 2–13, 2017 in Doha, Qatar, and the second from May 28 – June 10, 2017 in Madrid, Spain.
WISE – Qatar Foundation will cover all program-related expenses, including flights and accommodation, for the selected Learners.
Completed nomination and application forms should be submitted through the online application system by 15:00 GMT on March 31st, 2016
