About Elgorithm for Schools
Elgorithm for Schools is a digital platform providing schools with access to mental health programs and tools for access to quality education and higher education. Every partner school receives access to our 3 programs: (1) Omnia (2) Young Thinkers Program (3) Microsoft Digital Training
90% of youth in Lebanon report struggling with mental health issues, while 6% have access to such services.

The Awareness & Prevention program is a vide0-based series offered in English & Arabic that aims to promote student recognition around commonly faced stigmatized issues, as well as connect them to the appropriate protection services, if needed. Issues covered include gender-based differences, sexual harassment and violence, substance use, and disordered eating. Additionally, all students receive direct access to resources and services offering free mental health support.
In collaboration with the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation, the Young Thinker Platform is part of E4S, allowing students from partner schools to gain access to self-paced personal and professional development courses. As well as learning practices and career guidance tools to support students to consciously design their future and build pathways to higher education.
