UPSHIFT is a youth social innovation and social entrepreneurship program, designed to build skills and create opportunities for young people. The program empowers young people with the skills and resources necessary to help them identify problems in their communities and design local solutions for them. eUPSHIFT is a digital version of the UPSHIFT program and is delivered via Learning Passport.

The program is tailored to be easily adaptable to different contexts and delivered in different settings ranging from youth innovation labs to schools, and non-formal education centers. Both approaches are urgently needed in Sierra Leone. Through a combination of outreach and inspiration, human-centered design workshops, mentorship, and coaching, etc. participants in UPSHIFT can gain valuable and transferable skills, including; problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and leadership. Taking into consideration the effects of the pandemic, and the Government’s aim to transform Sierra Leone into a leading Digital Innovation and entrepreneurship hub, DSTI will now embark on developing a digital version of eUPSHIFT. The conduit through which the content will be delivered and embedded will be the Digital Learning Hubs.
