The English Access Microscholarship Program (Access)

by Teach For Lebanon - Mar 15,2021
The program will also include capacity building and mentoring for 200 teachers across five regions in Lebanon over two years. Finally, The Access Alumni component aims to support Access alumni across Lebanon over two years by providing them with training and small grants to equip them with skills and resources to better serve their communities.

First Access Alumni Training

The first Access Alumni training was held virtually on December 12, 2020, and focused (at the request of the participants) on “women empowerment”. The 30 Access Alumni who participated were welcomed before the sessions by Kristina Hayden, the US Embassy’s Public Affairs Officer. After the first session, the alumni were also joined by Edith Bitar, the US Embassy’s Cultural Affairs Coordinator.
When asked about the overall rating of the training session, the results of the exit survey conducted at the end of the workshop indicated that around 90% of attendees were satisfied with the Women Empowerment Training. One participant, Eva Boumjahed noted that "Training for parents is needed to protect the girls today from early marriage, we as youth need to work on changing the laws tomorrow" which points at the impact of education in policy reforms that we aspire to foster in our society today.

If you are an Access Alumni and would like to take part in future trainings, please reach out to [email protected].
