The students at Amideast Jordan 2016 Karak in Karak, Jordan investigated the important issue of fighting drugs in collaboration with Denver Center for International Studies in Denver, Colorado, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign about the problem of drugs, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“We chose this issue due to our community’s need to face it. We worked together to spread awareness by using a social media platform, school broadcasting, drawing, inviting specialized guests to speak about drugs, photos, videos, brochures and interviewing students.”
This student project was created as part of YouthTalk 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US and the Arab World. It is run by the Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
