Qatar Foundation has launched a program designed to identify and support the needs of bright, young students in Qatar. The initiative – titled Qatar Foundation Gifted Enrichment Programs – will be supported by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.
As part of a cooperation agreement between the two entities, Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) will offer a customized version of its Live Interactive Virtual Explorations (L.I.V.E.) program for the Qatar Foundation (QF) initiative.
The Qatar Foundation Gifted Enrichment Programs will offer engaging online enrichment courses, developed and delivered by CTY expert instructors, to identify gifted learners. It is set to run from February 6 to April 10.
QF gifted education experts will be on-hand to support students through in-person workshops, which adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols, at Qatar Academy for Science and Technology, a QF Pre-University Education (PUE) school.
Cynthia Lynn Bolton, Head of Gifted Support, PUE Academic Affairs, QF, said:
“We are delighted to announce the cooperative agreement with the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth – a global leader in gifted education. This program will provide learning opportunities to gifted students in Qatar, something previously limited to just a handful of schools locally or programs outside of the country. At QF, we are dedicated to developing and applying innovative models and practices that can influence and continuously improve education across Qatar and the region. And the agreement with the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth is an example of this commitment.”
The CTY agreement will help the development of the Gifted Enrichment Programs – an effort that will aim to serve schools and families across the country seeking support for their gifted students, including a summer program scheduled to be launched at the end of June 2021.
CTY draws upon its four decades of experience identifying and nurturing the academic talents of young students. The long-term aspiration of this cooperation is to serve gifted learners in Qatar, and to create a thriving and sustainable program that can serve these students for years to come.
