4 days of 3.5 hour sessions
YIF Coordinator Online Course
The YIF Coordinator’s Course is the first step that culminates with students presenting their projects during the YIF Showcase, an event where adolescents will showcase their projects for social and environmental change. During the course we will first raise awareness about the impact of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and then provide project development activities to enable you to unleash the potential of their students. You will learn how to engage students to identify a problem that deeply concerns them and will be provided with the tools to fully implement their projects:
How to build teams and networks to tackle specific social issues, how to write SMART Goals and apply them to their projects, how to create a business plan, how to create a budget and “business pitch” for their projects, how to utilize social media for marketing and fundraising, how to put it all together as an Implementation Plan to be presented at the Youth Impact! Forum, and be briefed by UN experts on the SDGs
Open to Middle School and High School teachers, parents, club advisors, home school teachers. Please note that the course is not limited to Montessori schools and that we support home school groups, clubs, public schools, private schools, charter schools.
