MCF Summer School - Community Partners 2019
From Nicholas Cameron on July 31st, 2019
The Mastercard Foundation Summer School creates positive change for more than just the students who take part each year. The program’s focus is transformative leadership and each year it teaches a talented group of young students how to inspire and motivate others. The students work in teams with a group of Community Partners, organisations in the Edinburgh area who open their doors in the hope of identifying and resolving problems within the local community. The collaboration lasts 4 weeks but the solutions put forward can bring powerful positive change for both the partners and the local community long after the final presentations end.
