I Have a Dream
The School Shark Tank
School-age children make up 25% of Bahamian citizens yet are not actively included in civic engagement and participation. They are directly impacted by school and learning environments— as the primary beneficiaries of schools – but, despite this, are often not consulted in the conversations and decisions that shape and develop these environments.
The “I Have A Dream” School Shark Tank is an ORG Bahamas Education Program/Event which provides a platform to empower youth, amplify their voices, and advance their ideas, plans and dreams for education in The Bahamas. After all, who has more intimate knowledge of what is and isn’t working for Bahamian students than the students themselves?
