A Academy

A Academy was established in 2015, with an overall aim of reinforcing the culture of giving back to the community through education. A Academy’s primary goal is to invest in human potentials, as A Academy’s programs focus on academic areas that capitalize on students’ theoretical and practical abilities on Bahrain’s competitive advantages. These areas include teaching and developing social communication skills, so rather than education as a transmission of knowledge; it is a reconstruction of experience.

Through A Academy Education Program for Peer Learning, the A Academy eagerly spread the culture of volunteerism in the educational field. The A Academy Education for Peer Learning program enthusiastic, passionate community of Bahraini youth took it upon themselves to help their colleagues and assist them on their various University courses. The program succeeded to assist more than 10.000 students from all majors. The Program’s services, which are all free of charge, vary from tutoring classes to workshops and students’ activities that ignites students’ creative and critical thinking, as well as presentation and communication skills.
