EMPOWERING THE YOUTH OF TODAY FOR THE CHALLENGES OF TOMORROW
A state-of-the-art future leadership after-school program for high-performing students
This transformative educational experience is focused on empowering our youth to solving the problems of tomorrow. Its enquiry-based approach advances critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem solving and social and environmental awareness.
If we know one thing for sure about the future, it is that the world keeps changing with all the challenges that go with it. Many of the current jobs are going to be taken over by robots and software, and we have to look for ways that humans can still contribute. This is mostly in identifying issues at hand, creative problem solving, making decisions based on critical analyses and working together with people from multiple backgrounds.
We develop skill sets needed for the jobs of the future.
THRIVE WITH PURPOSE
WORKING TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
All our projects are aimed at having a direct impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as defined by the United Nations. Our students work on real-world problems, while developing their research, critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication skills. Students need these 21st-century skills to prepare them for the real-world problems they will face during their lifetime.
Above and Beyond
We work with very small groups (6-10 children) on each project, so we have a lot of attention for every individual. We select the children that are interested in order to ensure that they meet the needed skill set in order to fully participate.
This is an advanced program. For every project we do an interview with the child (max 15 minutes) in which we assess the level of English (fluency is mandatory) and the levels of commitment and dedication.
When interested in any of our programs, please plan a free online intake. Please make sure to send us the results of the latest MAP-tests (if possible) and/or other report cards.
Currently, we only offer programs to children in the age range of 8-11 years old, but we will expand our programs shortly. We also expect to start offering bilingual Thai/English projects.

INTRODUCTION TO PYTHON & COMPUTER SCIENCE
Online Summer Project
2-13 August. Online. Max 10 children
Learning to code develops problem-solving and computational thinking skills. It helps kids develop new ways of thinking and fosters problem-solving techniques.
This course is designed to be a gentle introduction to basic computer science and programming concepts, such as syntax, loops, and variables, through the engaging and familiar experience of a video game.
4 online classes:
2 x Tue & Fri from 10h00 to 11h30 AM (GMT+7/Thailand)
Materials needed: laptop, access to Internet and Discord
Costs: 2,000 THB for the complete program
Every Saturday, from August 21st to September 18 (5x),
from 9 AM-11h30 AM
Location: Villa San Pee Seua, Chiang Mai, and in our workshop space in Chiang Phueak
During this project, our students will work for a hotel in Chiang Mai. They will develop a plan on how to make the hotel more sustainable.
The students will learn about sustainable tourism and the many ways in which a hotel can be sustainable. We will do an excursion to a hotel in the Chiang Mai region to show them best practices. All these learnings will be punt into practice when the students will have to formulate their advice for Villa San Pee Seua.
The students will present their advice to the management of the hotel in an engaging presentation (for which they will be prepped).
Costs: 6,000 THB for the complete program.
HILL TRIBE COFFEE
Starting early November, more details will be added. Max 10 children.
We are looking for some true innovators for this project. The students will work together with Lanna Café in Chiang Mai. This NGO assists coffee producers of the Thai Hill tribes to grow coffee organically and fair trade.
We will do a full day excursion to the Hill tribes where the students will help coffee picking. They will experience the full production process from bean to cup.
After being inspired, our students will learn about product innovations. Lanna needs their help: apart from coffee and tea, what else can be produced from coffee plants and beans? Shampoo? Skin care products? It is up to our students to find market opportunities. They will formally present their findings to the coffee team of Lanna. By doing so, they will contribute to SDG8 (decent work and economic growth) SDG9 (innovation) and SDG12 (responsible consumption & production).
Working towards sustainable growth of Thailand is a community effort.
We're always looking for projects to work on with our students. If you have a challenge that contributes to the sustainable development goals and if you are located in the Chiang Mai area, please contact us to discuss the project.
