Youth summit an unforgettable experience

  • 2b-Letter4
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend the World ORT/ Scholas Occurentes Youth Summit in Mexico, together with 10 King David high school pupils and two teachers. Scholas is Pope Francis’ NGO, and it has a special relationship with World ORT. This was the fourth such annual youth summit.

How does one describe such an impactful experience? It’s hard to explain the effect of this programme to those not actually immersed in it. Watching powerful education in action is so heartening. It is one thing to understand the current theories of education, but it is quite another to see that, when expertly handled, it actually works magnificently.

I am so grateful to both World ORT and Scholas for giving the King David students (who live in an  isolated place at the tip of Africa and also in a sheltered or protected manner) an opportunity to interact, network and build relationships with students from other cultures, nationalities and religions. The students cannot stop raving about their experiences and feel that their lives have been fundamentally and positively altered.

Personally, the programme gave me, as a school social worker and a representative of King David High School, an opportunity to network with other like-minded educationalists wanting to make positive impacts on the lives of their students. I am so inspired to share with my school all that I have seen and learnt.
