Has that program been sustained since then and/or duplicated in more places where there are young people with similar needs?

Hi Midi, I've enjoyed reading your comments on Social Edge this week. You wrote "I was charged with developing learning systems for disadvantaged and disaffected youth. My colleagues and I didn't know what to do, so we asked the kids themselves what they needed, and co-created with them the learning experience they judged fit for their purpose. It was exciting to see how motivated they became in learning and, beyond that, how the product and process of the learning models we developed was increasingly adopted by mainstream learning institutions."

I encourage you to share information about that system in this forum. However, in context of the Social Edge discussion, what would it take to duplicate such learning systems so they are available to more kids in more places?
