Youth Talk

Arabian Pearl Gulf School is once again honored to be partnering with Global Nomads Group (GNG) by participating in the Youth Talk program. This club is a partnership between our school and Sharon Public School Massachusetts.

Youth Talk is an educational interactive video conference program for high school students. It is designed to promote active global citizenship among young people in the US and the countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). These connections will allow students to exchange perspectives and to increase their understanding of people and cultures worldwide.

The program is an initiative of Bridges of Understanding and Global Nomads Group. Members of the club will immensely benefit by engaging in intercultural dialogue, gathering resources and building leadership skills. Members will also utilize technology and learn how to communicate and share ideas across cultures and will be equipped with the 21st century learning skills needed to positively influence relations across cultures.

The Youth Talk program requires students to participate in:

  • Live videoconferences between Arabian Pearl Gulf School and Sharon High school students
  • A private Google + online Community
  • An interactive project-based curriculum
  • A collaborative project that will build cultural understanding

Students who successfully complete this program will receive a certificate from GNG and Arabian Pearl Gulf School. They will also get a surprise reward from the school.
