The Local Routes Foundation produces programs consisting of tools, curriculum, and services for community based youth training and development programs.
Programs are produced by local organizations working side by side in a global partnership.
Youth learn about heritage, culture, and nature within their own community. Local groups interact with each other within their own country and with groups in other countries. Youth use the Routes platform to create local maps to showcase the unique features of their community.
Youth learn about local businesses and their role in economic development.
Technology is core curriculum for each program. Specifically, while youth learn to use technology to improve their local community and sharing the use of tools with local residents, participants also focus on technical skills including data science, computer programming, and data driven software development.
