Mission Possible is WFUNA’s flagship global citizenship education program for high school students, focused on the United Nations, the Sustainable Development Goals, and 21st century skills.
Designed to challenge students to become Agents of Change and Global citizens, Mission Possible launched in 2015. It was first implemented in person in partner schools from 2015 to 2020, and online in 2020.
Over this period, the in-person program reached more than 400 students and teachers in 14 schools across three countries – India, Armenia and Singapore. Student teams have completed more than 75 youth-led projects, contributing to address targets of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These include providing sustainable energy sources to orphanages, challenging gender stereotypes and inequalities, and reducing pollution through terrace-farming, amongst others.
The 2020 expansion of Mission Possible as an online program saw students from more than 45 schools on all continents participate in this global education experience. The online programs gave opportunity to students to engage in meaningful activities with youth from around the world, be active, connect with other youth, and gain an international experience despite COVID-19 related lockdowns and travel restrictions.
