The students at Al-M'addi High School for Boys in Amman, Jordan investigated the important issue of unemployment in collaboration with the Humanities School in Brooklyn, New York, USA. Together they created an action project for the unemployment crisis , and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“Unemployment is one of the problems in our society and in the world that affects a large segment of society and leads to significant problems in the community. We hope that through the project we can reduce this problem and help the unemployed by training them to acquire the necessary job skills.”
This student project was created as part of Campfire 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US, Jordan, and Pakistan. Campfire is run by Global Nomads Group. Campfire is made possible thanks to the generous support of our partners The Bezos Family Foundation, an award from the Aspen Institute Stevens Initiative with support from the U.S. Department of State and the Bezos Family Foundation, and additional support from PhotoWings, the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, and the Yahoo Employee Foundation.
