Program Area: Education
Location of Impact: Jordan

Bold Idea: Equip Arab youth to shape their future by providing transformative learning experiences for them and their parents, allowing communities to engage critically and creatively with their world.

Why I'm Passionate About This: Though school enrollment is increasing in Arab nations, the quality of education provided is inadequate to equip youth to think critically about their country’s future. In our own lives, we believe it’s our education that has enabled us to thrive. Hoping to offer others what education gave to us, we joined Peace Corps Jordan. We learned about the religion, culture, and aspirations of the Arab people who long for change but have few tools to achieve it. Think Unlimited empowers Jordanian youth by building their critical thinking skills and fostering civic-mindedness, while increasing learning in the home and motivation in the classroom.
