APPROACH AND METHODOLOGY
Currently, impossible2Possible is building an alumni network of i2P Youth Ambassadors attending universities across North America. These alumni youth ambassadors will help formalize impossible2Possible university groups at their campuses, and also play active roles in the expansion of the initiative by communicating with students and coordinating additional chapters.
University students will utilize i2P guides and work with local teachers to create interactive sessions for local k-12 students. University student mentors will identify a teacher and/or classroom to partner with and agree on a timeline from one visit to regular visits during the academic year. Utilizing i2P curriculum and interactive website to link world-class adventures to classrooms around the world, the university student mentors will facilitate a group project which could be anything from a group excursion to a fundraising campaign.
IMPLEMENTATION, TIMELINE, AND DELIVERABLES
University groups will be active participants in the preparation and communication with local elementary, middle, and high schools for all i2P Experiential Learning Programs. Groups will assist the organization in gathering information pertinent to programs, disseminate to schools in the local community and carry out programming for children and adolescents grades K-12.
To date i2P Experiential Learning Programs have raised funds for clean water wells in Africa, schools in the Amazon Jungle, tree planting projects at home in North America, and many other projects that directly and indirectly affect the lives of countless people. Over the last 3 years i2P has worked with thousands of k-12 students and teachers on experiential learning programs all over the globe - including participants in Canada, Chile, Germany, India, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Russia, and beyond.
Over the next two years the i2P University Development Initiative goals are to develop working chapters at college campuses across North America. Successful implementation of the i2P University Development Initiative means creation of university chapters across North America with all chapters working with i2P to deliver meaningful experiential learning programs to students globally as well as empowering young people to make positive impacts.
With the help of university student mentors, i2P hopes to engage 200,000 youth grades k-12 in interactive, experiential learning activities over the next two years.
Spanning the world, social and environmental issues abound and i2P Experiential Learning Programs seek to educate, inspire, and empower youth to make positive impacts on these global issues. Youth are encouraged to raise awareness of, and find solutions for, social and environmental issues such as the lack of clean drinking water for millions, deforestation in the Amazon, critical climate change issues, or the lack of access to health care around the world. Impossible2Possible's commitment to expanding the learning spectrum by engaging students in credible experiential learning programs that include interactive websites, live video conferencing from the most remote regions of the planet, daily video journals, along with educational curriculum accepted by the United Nations International year of Biodiversity (IYB) and International Year of Chemistry (IYC). These experiential learning programs bring education to a modern 21st century level that youth are relating to, getting excited about, and most importantly engaging in. All i2P Experiential Learning Programs are subsidized by corporate sponsors, donors, and grant makers and are delivered free of charge to schools around the world.
