Access to quality education has the power to transform the lives of marginalized youth. To be uneducated is to be sidelined and excluded from vocational and personal opportunities – often for life.
High rates of education consistently lead to decreases in exploitation, early marriage, poverty, and radicalization. Schools give refugee and low-income youth stability and structure when everything else has been stripped away.
Schools also give displaced youth a way to fit into a new community and develop the social skills needed to live in times of peace.
Questscope’s approach to education is based on our Reciprocal Learning for Change (RLC©) methodology. It was developed for youth who have experienced trauma or other severe hardship.
RLC© emphasizes the critical importance of a supportive relationship between the educator and student, and it supports youth in regaining ownership over their education and becoming agents of positive change in their communities.
