Opportunity Description

YSI Global welcomes online applications for a four-week innovation & youth-centered program aimed at utilizing creativity, innovative thoughts, and entrepreneurship to help the government, health workers and everyone fighting the COVID-19.

This program is for each and all solutions to actual problems created at local, national and international levels by the coronavirus.

Deadline: 20th March 2020

Program starting date: 23rd March

Duration: four weeks (March 23rd – April 17th)

Delivery mode: online


Program structure: the program consists of four following parts:

1: Identification of the problem

If you have determined a problem, your focus then is to review it. For those participants without a problem yet, they will discover an important problem to solve.

2: Creation of idea

Generate an idea and come up with a good idea and concept to experiment.

3: Test of idea

It has never been more fruitful than to test the idea before disseminating it. So, it needs to be helpful, not harm the current efforts, and create real value.

4: Implementation of idea

If the solution is observed working it’s time to apply it and spread it into the world, and ensure it will be accessible to the people who need it the most!

Note: each week some teams will be changed in the program to enable focus on stronger teams with more progress and potential.

  1. Each week starts with a course and a set of duties to concentrate on for the week.
