Join a community of educators using BYkids films as pathways toward a more connected world!

  • Looking for a professional development opportunity designed by teachers, for teachers?
  • Interested in re-centering student voices and stories in your classroom?
  • Eager to inspire deeper engagement in your curricula?


In this expansion of last summer’s inaugural cohort, students and teachers will come together to explore how BYkids films can enrich their teaching and learning experiences. Throughout the 2023-24 school year, the inaugural cohort has successfully integrated the films into their classrooms nationwide across a variety of disciplines, from Science to English to World Languages, pairing the films with a wide variety of texts and designing innovative assessments that students and teachers have found to be both inspiring and exhilarating.

Join us this summer for this free three-day professional development workshop that will highlight the many pedagogical uses and benefits of BYkids films and provide insights and opportunities for creating customized pathways to integrate BYkids films into your curricula. The program will be offered in-person at several high school campuses around the country as well as virtually.

This mentorship program from In-Sight Collaborative is designed to provide training and experience in the nonprofit sector as it relates to humanitarianism and development. The program is designed to be accessible to people who may not have access to humanitarian training otherwise. 

Program dates:
July 1 - August 12, 2024

The program will be available in English, Spanish, or Arabic.

Participants will be given the opportunity to: 

  • discover a better sense of self and community as humanitarians
  • imagine and conceptualize interventions rooted in empathetic system design and accompaniment
  • increase their network and knowledge to contribute to the paradigm shift in forced displacement and larger humanitarian sector towards equity 

Since its inception in 2020, the mentorship program has been attended by hundreds of participants from over 35 countries around the world. We believe that anyone with the right mindset and a willingness to engage can be an effective part of the humanitarian response from any background, profession, or sector. It is one of our goals to help inspire future humanitarian leaders and give them the tools and resources they need to participate in a meaningful way.

Throughout the program, participants will be given the opportunity to explore the following areas of the non-profit and humanitarian sector:

  • History of the humanitarian sector, humanitarian principles, and current trends
  • Planning, assessment, implementation, and evaluation of humanitarian interventions
  • Strategic planning within the non-profit industrial complex and other structural challenges
  • Ethical fundraising and advocacy initiatives
  • Community-based research
  • Human-centered leadership
  • Power of narratives and storytelling
  • Wellness and community care for humanitarians

About In-Sight Collaborative

In-Sight Collaborative is a humanitarian NGO founded in 2016 by a group of friends volunteering in refugee camps in Northern Greece. In an acute humanitarian crisis spanning acres and acres of farm fields, train tracks, gas station parking lots, and abandoned hotels, our founding members recognized that the current lens we had grown up with to view the world was dangerously misleading. We saw a need for more collaboration, for more championing of the agency of the people who call these camps home.

In-Sight Collaborative is a facilitator to those in the humanitarian sector who recognize that cultivating an equitable aid system starts with oneself. Moving from its direct aid model, In-Sight Collaborative now works to embody the accompaniment model. We educate humanitarians to be intentional and empowered to cultivate a more equitable system by providing educational tools, programs, and platforms to address harmful policies and practices.
