The first edition of the PAHEi Global Youth Program was launched in 2022 as two one-week 2022 PAHEi Summer Bridge programs organized during the month of August in Douala and Yaoundé (Cameroon). It was a resounding succès, demonstrating how the PAHEi model is transformational and provides students with new pathways to achieve success. The PAHEi Summer Bridge programs are highly selective one-week programs that expose students to an American university experience while learning what it takes to become a data professional.

The 2022 Summer Bridge by the number:

1. Selection criteria: 76 participants out of approximately 400 applications/expressions of interest:

  • Successful interview
  • Intermediate English proficiency
  • Interest in STEM and Business
2. Grade level of participants as of June 2022:
  • High school: 59%
  • University: 30%
  • Other: 11%

3. Diversity Equity and Inclusion:

  • Gender: 64% women
  • Regional diversity: Center, West, Littoral, North-West, South-West, North, East and South, predominantly; a participant from Chad.

Learning Outcome

The 76 participating students had the unique opportunity to take a deeper dive into academic options beyond high school. During the program, students were engaged with college-level academic contents exclusively in English, as taught on US campuses. Exploratory coursework in Data Analytics, Leadership Development, Resilience Training, Team Building for STEM Academy, Ideation, and others will be delivered in a hybrid modality by US based faculty in-person and online.

Testimony from a student: "The way the courses were given was just so excellent. This program has helped a lot with my capacity in programming."
