MLI is currently expanding our CHAMPS program to include high-school students in a Leadership Development program called Peace Makers and Problem Solvers (PMPS). Through this program, MLI will equip educators with tools and resources to implement a curriculum in their classrooms that focuses on leadership development and problem solving skills, and connects students in North America with students in conflict-affected countries so young people work together to identify humanitarian issues and collaborate to work towards a solution. Through PMPS, young leaders learn to identify a purpose for a humanitarian project, explore possible options, debate the issues from different perspectives, determine how to effectively utilize resources, and set goals to establish a course of action for the project. Students are encouraged to think critically about the world around them and gain real-life experience in conversing and brainstorming solutions to problems with peers in countries like Bosnia Herzegovina and Colombia.
We are currently seeking teachers who are interested in participating in this exciting and challenging program – you will be connected to a school and students in either Bosnia or Colombia, and your students will have the opportunity to meet and work with like-minded peers.
