Frequently Asked
Questions

What do you expect from parents throughout the program?

At Global Impact Middle School, Leader Coaches guide stars throughout the program to raise their awareness on their social responsibility. However, we ask parents to ensure that the star’s calendar and weekly schedule are arranged accordingly to accommodate for the program. This is important to avoid the stars missing out in the completion of any challenges and attendance to online seminars.

How can my children use her/his achievements in YGA in the international arena?

One of the most important factors while applying universities is to show that children have a role in long lasting social responsibility projects. Recently, universities began to give credit to long lasting committed projects by the students. Thus, universities try to understand what skills students have developed over the years in YGA and how it affected on their personal development. Our stars should mention what they have achieved in the program and what progress they showed in terms of competency development in their motivation letter.

Does being accepted to the Impact Lab program mean that my student is accepted to upcoming steps?

Stars are closely observed by their Leader Coaches during the program and are evaluated based on their activity and participation rates. After the Impact Lab program, stars are sorted based on these evaluated criteria. Top 80 stars are then qualified for Deep Dive program.

Why it is a paid program?

Young Guru Academy is a non-profit organization. YGA creates resources in 3 ways: sponsorships, individual donations, YGA equity from YGA projects. Global Impact Middle School is one of the projects that YGA creates equity. Program fee is used to cover all program costs. In the program, 1 in 5 students participate in the program with a scholarship awarded by YGA. Every year, thanks to our supporters and donors, we try to increase the number of scholarship children studying in the program and to grow more double winged young people.

If my student doesn’t complete each step of Global Impact Middle School, will he be able to get a certificate?

The stars receive a certificate after completing each step within the program.

How many hours will my children needs to reserve weekly for the programs.

An average of 1.5 – 2 hours per week is enough for stars to complete the program. Live broadcasts are usually taking place in the afternoon so that they are not overlap with school time. When it comes to the challenges, students usually have a week before they need to submit. Online meeting hours determined according to student's availability.
