MASK has accumulated significant expertise and experience through our programs that include Creativity Clubs in primary schools, Creativity for Entrepreneurship and Leadership Clubs (CEL), and the internationally renown creativity platform MASK Prize. MASK also ran Creativity for Peacebuilding and Creativity Summer Camp.
Creativity for Entrepreneurship and Leadership Clubs (CEL)
CEL meet 1-2 times a week, for sessions that generally last 1-1.5 hours. CEL seeks to unlock entrepreneurial and leadership skills, help students to view entrepreneurship as a possible career option, and make them more work-ready when they leave school.
By solving real-life problems, CEL students learn to cope with all aspects of the innovation process.
