Self-sufficiency and growth
Self-sufficiency and continuous growth for the student and our program. Provide digital skills that allow students to participate in the global economy.
Do things that don’t scale
Optimize for local needs. Work with good people in difficult areas. Do the extra English-Arabic translation. Aim for mastery, not memorization.
Reduce all barriers to access, be they lack of English fluency, financial resources, technical access, or mobility.
Focus on the whole person
Address wellbeing and mental health alongside skills education. Treat ourselves and others as humans, not as cogs in a machine.
Optimize for fun
Don’t take ourselves too seriously. Go with the flow; follow the curiosity of the students above strict adherence to schedule.
Welcome students as they are. In our classroom is a home and safe place for each student to learn and grow. No discrimination.
