Valuing Teachers and YSI Guides

Training in the YSI framework for social innovation together with guiding a team qualifies a teacher for YSI Guide Certification.

We value the dedication and commitment of teachers who deliver social innovation education and our recognition system demonstrates this:

  • YSI Guide Certification is awarded to teachers who attend our requisite training and who support a team of students through to programme completion.
  • A special ‘Let Them Shine Award’ is presented to YSI Guides who demonstrate a longer term commitment to promoting and facilitating youth led social innovation (five and ten year awards).

Visit our Teachers & Educators section to learn more.

I am incredibly inspired by the students I have had the honour of mentoring this year for YSI. I feel that I have gained immensely from engaging with this project and have learned so much from them just by letting them take the lead and helping them reach their full potential.
