We encourage participants to use design thinking in their action projects. Your action project can be done with one of TribesforGOOD partners, for a community, or a project of your choice. You can choose from digital literacy to creating storyboards, shooting material, editing videos to  content writing, research projects or even a business pitch. The projects should be human centered, meaning they start with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor made to suit their needs. Throughout the action project, you will be guided by an experienced professional or a mentor, who will help you break down your project into sizable parts. 

By creating something that aims to solve social change problems, you will learn new skills, gain a new perspective of thinking, realize your creative potential and prove your resilience. These outcomes will lead to multiple personal benefits, something young people constantly search for. 

The program is open for students between the ages of 13- 18. Please fill in an application form, which will be reviewed by our team and we will get back to you. If successful, we will arrange a Skype call to get to know more about, your interests and your passions. 

 

We look forward to hearing from you!

Alumni Projects 

"Words can’t describe how much I’ve not only learnt, but how much I’ve enjoyed myself doing something I love while contributing to something much bigger than myself. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to enact positive social change while learning so much."

 

Anant Shah, Grade 12

Kuwait International School

"The work was challenging yet rewarding. It also forced me to re-evaluate the issue as we took a rigorous problem-solving approach from day one. The guidance and on the ground insights provided by TFG allowed me to reorient the way I understood the issue of women’s financial inclusion on a much deeper level than what I had previously anticipated, forcing me to confront my own biases and blind spots.

 

The work done with TribesForGood stood out when I filled out my college applications in the past weeks not only on the resume but also in my essays. The new experiences and the engaging nature of the work had me talking about them almost automatically. Also, being exposed to the new conversations made me rethink the ‘why’ behind my education, affording me a much deeper conversation with the colleges and the courses I was approaching."
