We believe that all youth deserve opportunities to better understand themselves and their place within the world.
Low-income youth face tremendous obstacles to completing high school, entering college and achieving their full potential. They often live in neighborhoods where poverty and crime are common and job and education opportunities are not. This puts students from low-income communities at a serious disadvantage when it comes to having a chance at economic self sufficiency, full civic participation and becoming leader for sustainable societal and environmental change. Closing the experience gap is more important than ever.
Since 2009, AFAR Media and No Barriers USA have provided Learning AFAR scholarships to 613 youth.
We believe that, given the right opportunities to authentically learn, every individual can reach his or her potential, live a fulfilling life, and have a positive impact on the world.

Dream with Us
Imagine a world where a million youth have opportunities to open their eyes to our world and their place within it. We believe the best way to do this is to build a network of partners who are passionate about that goal. Bring your voice and resources to this transformative work.
