Sky School’s curriculum development work relies on dedicated Course Leaders - educational changemakers who lead the development and refining of Sky School courses. Louie Barnett is the Course Leader of our Peace-building Course. In this article, we talk to Louie about why he became involved in Sky School and what it’s led to.
Since June 2018, Sky School has been running a new course ‘Peace-building in your community’ with partners in six countries around the world. 100 young refugees have taken part, and graduated as young peacebuilders with an aspiration to positively impact their communities.
We are thrilled to announce that Sky School has been asked to join the UNHCR’s #With Refugees Coalition. Sky School is one of more than 450 universities, foundations, faith-based organizations, youth groups, UN Agencies, and NGOs who are working in their own unique capacities to promote access to education, shelter and livelihoods to the refugee demographic throughout the world.
