U-Learn is a collaborative and intercultural network of young facilitators that share skills, tools and knowledge using unconventional learning styles and environments.
developed to complement existing education and training systems, we rejuvenate information sharing & capacity building by creating engaging learning spaces and by preparing learners for life and work transitions.
Before we existed..
…like many other people in the world, life transitions such as moving countries, suburbs and houses, career change, going from school to life/work or work to uni, or dependency to adulting were all part of Mehak’s journey! at each stage of the journey, information was minimal, non-reflective or inaccessible.
Evidence for our need...
…social and emotional intelligence is a key skill to have through and after these transitional periods. higher emotional intelligence has been associated with better health and overall well-being.
Where we are now?
we recognise the importance of life skills and emotional intelligence to get through various life transitions. this research and lived experience of other people who have been through transitions inform our workshops. get in touch to find out how you can be involved.
