1. About Seenaryo

2. About the Scenechangers Programme
Funded by the DROSOS Foundation, Seenaryo launched the Scenechangers project in March 2023 which aims at providing sustained employment pathways for youth who have upskilled through theatre under Seenaryo’s programming in Jordan and Lebanon. The project will train and employ 128 youth Scenechangers (aged 18-30) to teach the curriculum through theatre and aims to embed them in schools and CBOs to run play-based, participatory workshops that respond to curriculum needs for 12-15-year-olds. These workshops will in turn build the life skills, engagement, and well-being of a total of 20,800 School Youth who will participate in workshop classes taught by Scenechangers.

3. Objectives
The Scenechangers project is currently at its development phase of the training content and material, training plans and guides. The development phase started in February 2024 and will continue up until early May 2024. All the materials are being developed in the English language and we want to translate all documents to the Arabic language. The plan is to translate each document as soon as it's finalised so the scope of work will start in April and end in May 2024.
