Welcome Post

Hi everyone!

Thanks for your interest in Brick In The Wall.

For those who are new, this project aims to increase awareness and participation in alternative education in Malaysia - study abroad, internships, mentorships, apprenticeships, short term courses, shadowing, service, volunteering, distance education, homeschooling, alternative schools, unschooling, and much more to come.

Planned projects include a comprehensive website, a resource centre, a mentorship program, awareness activities, and plenty of others.

Currently we are:

1. Looking For People
We need 10-20 people to form our core team. This team will discuss, manage, administrate, lead, and implement projects undertaken by Brick In The Wall. Preferably the majority of the group would be youths; however, adults with experience in NGOs, youth work, and/or education are also being seeked.

2. Looking For Resources
We are looking for information on all sorts of alternative education programs - whether it's an acting class or AFS to Australia. The programs can be based in Malaysia or overseas; as long as it's open to Malaysians, it's all good. We are also looking for people interested in being mentors (or any other part of the program), scholarship opportunities, and special events.

Our Project Profile is at http://projects.takingitglobal.org/brickinthewall - please visit and participate.

Post all ideas and discussion here, and spread the word! Thanks! :)
