Educate! tackles youth unemployment by partnering with schools and governments to reform what schools teach and how they teach it, so that students in Africa have the skills to start businesses, get jobs, and drive development in their communities.

We accomplish this through two core services:

We deliver leadership, entrepreneurship, and workforce readiness training directly in

Government Engagement:

Education System Support

 

We partner with governments to integrate our solution into national education systems and support national curriculum reforms.

We target systems-level adoption of our model because we see education reform as the most cost-effective way to make a large-scale, sustainable impact on millions of young people. We provide technical advisory and implementation support to governments for skills-based education.

Our experiential model teaches hard and soft skills, including critical thinking, budgeting, teamwork, market research, self-confidence, and creativity. Educate! works within existing schools and national education systems. Our model is adapted to fit the context of each country we work in, so our in-school programs look different in each country.

The Educate! model is designed to deliver sustainable, lasting change for the greatest number of youth by working within education systems.
