Does your child know what they want in life? ARE THEY READY FOR THE CHALLENGES OF THE 21ST CENTURY?

JOIN THE FUTURE OF LEARNING PROGRAM

We invite 15 learners, ages 16-22, to participate in a new, purpose-inspired learning adventure. Your son/daughter will join other young people on a journey to explore new interests, strengths and connections to the world. They will learn skills to prepare for a rapidly changing future through reallife challenges, engagement with expert mentors and co-created learning experiences. The intention is to make learning highly personal.

The Barcelona Learning Innovation Centre (BLIC) is a ground-breaking lab that develops new learning methodologies, creative environments and innovative technologies to provide young people with a new learning model that meets their needs and aspirations.
Designed by and for youth, BLIC is a hybrid co-learning, makerspace, creative studio and start-up builder, where young people can realize their full potential.
At BLIC your son/ daughter will work with a team of professional mentors, and other youth, on their own passion projects – these could be as diverse as launching their first business, recording an album, solving Barcelona’s pollution problems, or maybe hacking a drone.
The participants will also help design the new learning spaces of BLIC itself, where they can turn their ideas into reality.
The possibilities are unlimited!

STEPHEN HARRIS
CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR OF LEARNING INNOVATION

“If, as educators, we are not prepared to initiate significant transformation now, in order to best meet current known contexts, then we have already failed the next generation and those to come.”

DEVIN CARBERRY
PROGRAM MANAGER

“I think about how lost I was at their age. I didn’t know myself, I didn’t have any guidance, and I was angry that I was forced to spend all day somewhere I felt my learning and creativity were stifled and where I was not valued. My life changed when a teacher finally reached out to me and became my mentor. What I think we can offer to youth is someone who understands them, someone who they can trust, and someone who wants to support their holistic growth and can guide them as they work towards understanding themselves and their place in the world.”

ANA AGUILERA
LEARNING GUIDE

“Our model for youth is you-centered. This means that there is no blue-print on what a learner can create through the program. You will have access to a team who will co-create with you a strategy that will work for you to not only develop projects you are truly passionate about, but also help you shape your personal purpose and vision. Thus, our core is building deep, caring, and long-lasting relationships with each of our learners.”
