About the challenge:

You can learn more and sign up here:
The ongoing refugee crisis has left 65.3 million people displaced worldwide. Generations of refugees have not been able to access higher education or employment opportunities. This is especially true for female refugees. Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) and the Scalabrini Center are working to change this by providing access to education and US-accredited degrees to refugees. We're looking to increase enrollment by female students to 50% - and we need your help! +Acumen Challenges are two-hour virtual events where participants apply their skills to real challenges facing real social enterprises working alongside teammates from around the world. Join hundreds of your peers at our next challenge working with the SNHU's Global Education Movement and their partners at the Scalabrini Center. You’ll get a crash course in behavioral psychology and then apply those concepts to help address this challenge.
