VIRTUAL TEACHING

Brighter Generation has a virtual platform for diaspora professionals and global volunteers to virtually teach high school students, from different regions of Ethiopia, in a classroom.The virtual teaching program aims to empower students by improving English communication, writing, reading, critical thinking, and leadership skills, as well as developing problem-solving skills through impactful community projects. Volunteer instructors receive training, lesson material and teaching guidance throughout  the program.

The virtual program was successfully demonstrated as a pilot in summer of 2022 at nine centers in different parts of Ethiopia. In summer of 2023, Brighter Generation expanded the virtual program to more than 30 locations across Ethiopia in order to teach thousands of students.  If you are interested in participating, sign up to volunteer and contribute a lasting impact to students in Ethiopia. 

IN-PERSON TEACHING

Brighter Generation demonstrated its first in-person pilot program in January 2023; a group of students from MIT traveled to Ethiopia to teach 130 students selected from 15 high schools a crash course on python programming language comprising intensive class lectures, hands-on exercises and final projects that will address the community’s needs. 

“We are privileged to be attending our undergraduate studies in the world’s most prestigious University, recently rated as the number one in the US. Having this amazing academic opportunity, we are eager to give our winter break, and precious time to support students in Ethiopia.”
