Educate! works within existing schools and national education systems. The components of our model are adapted to fit the context of each country we work in, so our in-school programs look different in each country. In Uganda, our in-school program is called the Educate! Experience.


The Educate! Experience

Educate!'s flagship program, the Educate! Experience, is designed to give students the skills to solve poverty for themselves and their communities. We deliver our practical, skills-based model of education by partnering with existing secondary schools. The program model is driven by the amazing people involved – the students, mentors, and teachers in these partner schools.

The model is comprised of the following components:

Scholars don’t get scores, they fight for knowledge. As a Scholar you make your own dreams come true.
— Mentor Emma

Copylefting: It’s only right


Educate! believes in paying it forward. Our curriculum was developed with the support of leading organizations around the world. We show our gratitude for their help and support by freely sharing our curriculum with everyone working for a common goal.

We are completely open-source with our curriculum.  What does that mean exactly? We copyleft it, the opposite of copyright, to ensure that we can have the greatest impact possible around the world. To date we have shared our curriculum with over 150 organizations. Much of the curriculum can be applied across cultures and many of our copylefting partners tailor the case studies and other aspects of the curriculum to their local contexts.
