Webinar on 5/28: Young Africans Seizing Opportunities in the Technology Sector

During our next Future Forward webinar, we explore insights regarding the ways young people are interacting with opportunities in the technology sector. The panel will feature tech and social entrepreneurs as well as development practitioners and young people. 

The upcoming webinar is scheduled for Thursday, May 28, 2015. RSVP at this link http://bit.ly/ayfmay28 and join the twitter chat using the #AfricaYouthFwd hashtag.

Across Africa, as in the rest of the world, a faster pace in the workplace calls for a faster and more technology savvy workforce. There are many opportunities arising out of the rapid rate of technology innovation across the continent. A key question is: how are young people positioned to seize these opportunities?

Edible Education: a School Garden Partnership with USC and Local Schools

I propose to start an after-school "garden classroom" in partnership between USC student volunteers and an LAUSD school closeby to USC, in either the USC Urban Garden or the Vermont Square Community Garden. With the mentorship of USC students and a hands-on curriculum of garden-based science and nutritional lessons, this venture could be an invaluable way to both bring more nutrition to schoolchildren's diets, supplementing their academic education, and empowering them to address the food injustice in their own communities.
