The island of Saint Lucia has recognized the need to strengthen digital skills and prepare youth for the workforce. With overall unemployment at 17% and youth unemployment at 36%, the need for quality education and personal and professional development is high.

We are working with Saint Lucia’s Department of Education, Innovation, and Gender Relations and a consortium of intergovernmental agencies, local organizations, and university partners to help bridge the digital divide while developing youth leadership, self-efficacy, and skills for a strong future in an increasingly digital world.

Leveraging the experience of our EdTech Center, we are enhancing the digital literacy and digital resilience of youth by integrating digital-skill building into instruction and equipping educators to use technology in education to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Our goal is to understand and accurately address the needs of Saint Lucian youth by engaging youth and local actors within the digital education ecosystem in the design and implementation of project activities.

Following a framework of positive youth development and youth-led and youth-centered approaches, our work will align with the desired outcomes of youth and community stakeholders, including private-sector employers and public sector entities. Saint Lucian educators will be trained in Positive -Youth Development, Digital Skills integration, and Open Educational Resource creation and will be mentored and coached to implement these tools & approaches in the classroom. Youth have opportunities to learn and apply digital skills outside of the classroom through private sector internship placements, mentoring, and volunteer opportunities related to digital inclusion, co-creation of digital open education instructional resources, and more.
