The integrated outreach methodology

Looking for tools to take your street work to the next level? StreetSmart Wheels offers your organisation a mobile school - which is a transportable blackboard on wheels - street-proof educational materials, digital technology and hands-on training and coaching to make your team more efficient in building trust and empowering young people on the streets.

The street as a safe learning space

Pull the mobile school onto the street, slide it open in seconds and turn any street into a positive and attractive learning environment. Move your blackboard on wheels to different target areas within the city to maximise your impact on communities and street-connected youth.

Wide range of educational materials

No hardware without software. Tweak the content of your mobile school with over 260 street proof educational panels you can attach to the boards. All materials are adapted to the reality of the streets and with a wide range of street-related topics such as entrepreneurship, health, basic literacy and sports, there is definitely something for everyone!

Continuous coaching and support

Keep learning with our hands-on on-site training modules that will turn your team into StreetSmart Wheels experts. With our training & coaching modules on crucial topics such as personal development, creative therapy and project management we provide your team with all the necessary insights and give them a collective boost to ensure high-quality interventions on the streets.

Testimonials & Projects

More than 50 StreetSmart Wheels projects worldwide

"A highlight for me was watching a young man, aged 22, whom I have known for almost ten years, walk around the 12 metres of blackboard and engage in every single activity. Each time he completed an exercise, he would come to me and take me to the board to show me what he had achieved. It was a very special moment that cemented just what can be achieved with our mobile school!"

~ Vicky Ferguson • Glad's House (Kenya)

"The mobile school is a great pedagogical instrument to work in the street. On top of the actual work we do with the children, we have an extraordinary tool to gain access in a new community, enhancing our intervention and reducing the time we would otherwise need to be able to form a trustworthy relation with the community."

~ Andrei Craciun • psychologist Save the Children (Romania)

"The introduction of the mobile school in Lomé has brought an innovation in the field of creative street work and educational practices. Children and educators now have the adapted tools to creatively communicate on different topics."

~ Sesse Koffi AwunyoCoordinator AGOPODE (Togo)

“The mobile school is where words keep quiet, because it is necessary to listen. Listen to the lives that are lived in looks, silences, gestures and moments that are as simple as they are extraordinary.”

~ Jessika Martínez • mobile school coordinator Alimentos para la Vida (Mexico)

"Being able to bring mobile school to Sri Lanka has been one of the best decisions I've made for 2020! During these times when children lost education and school thanks to the mobile school they gained self-esteem, confidence and knowledge. Not just the kids but the educators too!”

~ Debbie Edirisinghe • Founder & CEO Child Action Lanka (Sri Lanka)

These organisations already work with our mobile schools.
