The Youth Outreach Program is a way for Conscious Impact volunteers to engage with students in our village and the surrounding area at both the primary and secondary level. The main focus of our program is not to take the place of teachers in government schools, but to provide access to activities and information currently absent in the standard curriculum. Consequently we want our work to help cultivate the following skills in students: leadership, creativity, teamwork, and confidence.
So far, volunteers have put together and implemented workshops around environmental sustainability, art, yoga, and sexual health education. Our work focuses on collaboration with local teachers and finding ways we can support them as educators.
Our work is always open, experimental, and intentional. We invite volunteers from all walks of life who are interested in early childhood education, non-traditional learning, and youth empowerment to bring to the table their interests, with the flexibility of developing their own curriculum and programming. Volunteers who plan on being with Conscious Impact for longer terms are strongly desired to work with us, as we value the importance of building stable relationships with our students and teachers over a dedicated period of time.
