The MANGO Education Campaign provides educational activities for schools, with a particular emphasis on the humanities. More specifically, it focuses connecting the extracurricular experience with the classroom experience with project-based learning.
MANGO is an expansion of Language Exchange Atlanta, a meetup group designed to bring individuals together to practice their language skills. Our biggest focus is language learning, but we also emphasize on other important aspects of schools that the STEM model of education doesn't highlight, including media literacy, global studies, and service-learning.
Our campaign follows many of the ideals during the Renaissance era. In other words, we realize that technical subjects like science can coexist with a focus on art and literacy. When a scientist shows a diagram of the human body, an artist needs to make it look artistic. Also, when people learn how to code, grammar is used when the technical concepts are explained.
Even though we work with students of all grade levels, our target audiences are international female students in high school and college.
Our campaign implements educational projects that promote multicultural and vocational skills in schools.
The work we do has an effect on students of all grade levels, both inside and outside of the classroom, from preschool all the way to college.
As an international campaign, what we do can be beneficial for all countries around the world, including nations in Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
We promote the humanities is because these subjects promote qualities that make us human. Some of them are empathy and logic.
To make this possible, we will develop curriculum, share resources, and provide project-based, as well as career-building learning activities.
MANGO operates under the idea that schools should do more than provide academic knowledge. Education should also help students to be socially conscious and prepared for careers. Moreover, we believe that extracurricular activities such as debate team, writing for student newspapers, and technology groups should play a greater role in classroom learning. In addition, learning can be interdisciplinary, as humanities concepts such as multiculturalism can be integrated in mathematics too.
