Our mission is to enrich youth awareness of contemporary global issues; a goal that we believe is well aligned with that of your organization, reflected by your outstanding track record of developing global talent and skills in high school students.

Knovva Academy offers courses that have the potential to benefit and strengthen the second class of Young Leaders for the SDGs ability to fulfil their roles. The 6-week course, Living in a Connected World, specifically is a good opportunity for the Young Leaders to better understand how to navigate and optimize their role as a global advocate for the SDGs in an interconnected world.

The main takeaway from the entire experience, personally, was to keep an open mind. The world is such a divided place, we as humans, must remain open-minded to take all aspects into consideration. I have much faith in the future of humanity as I know there is a solid group of people who are passionate about helping all people and allowing all to prosper.

The benefit of working collaboratively with students from around the world is definitely something else not to be understated – meeting people and maintaining friendships with students who live 7,000 miles away from me is something I do not think I would have experienced otherwise. I do not think that it would be an exaggeration for me to say that my entire worldview shifted as a result of my experience.

Just to see young people from 25 countries talking about how to make the world a better place and how to use the skills they’ve acquired through education…It exceed all of my expectations.

As a school, we have relationships with numerous other educational institutes, but none thus far provide such resources for their partners and participants. It is this sort of example of “going the extra mile” that we believe separates Knovva from other educational providers.
