ELIX has offered -in partnership with Sky School- a series of social entrepreneurship courses in Athens, Greece for young refugee and migrant learners.
Sky School, an education initiative for refugee youth, aims to become the first international high school for displaced youth and refugees who have limited access to education because of conflict. It aspires to design a high school diploma program, based on online lessons and on-the-ground learning, which will be internationally recognized and founded on an international curriculum, inspired by the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP).
The project run from November to December 2017 with SkySchool offering the six-week pilot course “Social Entrepreneurship. How to Become a Change Maker” in three Sky School Hubs in Amman, Jordan, Athens, Greece and Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya.
ELIX supported the pilot program of the Sky School Hub by providing infrastructure services in Athens and coordinating the Sky School Hub activities.
All students who took part in this pilot course will be able to continue studying for the full diploma program, which will be rolled out from autumn 2018 and supported by ELIX in Athens, Greece.
