objectives

 

Supporter Networks

Get each student’s parents, relatives and approved family friends intimately engaged in their child’s development. 

 

Accountability

Create a culture of accountability around each student. Establish periodic check-in systems where detailed progress updates will be distributed to classmates, teachers, counselors, principals, parents, relatives and family friends.  

 

Motivation

Increase each student’s motivation. Through surveys of students, parents and principals we found that students lacked interest in school mainly because they could not visualize its relevance to their lives as adults. Akwai gives hands on experience in the necessary attributes for potential career paths.

 

Higher Education

Increase the student’s likelihood of receiving some sort of financial aid for postsecondary education. High school graduates with full (or even partial) financial aid are more likely to continue learning. 

 

Metrics

Accumulate large amounts of meaningful data that will help us measure the impact of this initiative and display it in easy to understand formats.
