We are excited to announce that CVC Web Solutions has partnered with Global Conservation Corps (GCC) to develop a mobile application for their Future Rangers program. This program is aimed at empowering young people in Africa to become conservation leaders in their communities, with the goal of extending the program throughout Africa and beyond. You can learn more about GCC and the Future Rangers program by visiting the GCC website at https://globalconservationcorps.org/future-rangers-curriculum-and-app/
The Future Rangers program is designed to provide education and opportunity to the youth living in and around the Greater Kruger National Park area, where unemployment for ages 18-24 is over 50%. The curriculum of the program is based on five pillars: Environmental Education, Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Life Skills, and Conservation. Through this holistic approach, the program aims to reduce poaching and develop the next generation of leaders who will care about the planet and its wildlife.
The mobile application that CVC Web Solutions is developing will initially be used by educators to track the progress of their students and evaluate the effectiveness of the program. It will provide them with access to the curriculum materials and educational resources, and allow them to communicate with other educators through a community forum. This will help GCC to monitor and improve the program and better serve the students, educators, communities and wildlife. Later on, the app will be accessible to students as well. With the hope that it will be able to extend the program’s reach throughout Africa and beyond.
As students progress through the program, the top performers will move on to skills and leadership training, positioning them as the best candidates for jobs and scholarships upon graduation. The program also provides opportunities for students to earn trips to visit reserves, often seeing wildlife for the first time. This intimate connection to nature is crucial in fostering a passion for conservation and making a positive impact on their communities and the world.
CVC Web Solutions is proud to support non-profit organizations like GCC and their efforts to make a positive impact in Africa. We understand the importance of technology in today’s world and are committed to using our skills and expertise to help GCC achieve their goals through the Future Rangers program.
