PhoenixQuest

 

27 students from Miami Dade College in Florida and Duhok Polytechnic University in Iraq, created PhoenixQuest, an app to support refugees looking for employment and offering a variety of professional and vocational resources. Involving job offers and other opportunities like donations, PhoenixQuest aims to build a firm base for refugees to succeed.

Team PhoenixQuest won 1st place at the prestigious Global Solutions Sustainability Challenge, an initiative that connects college students in the U.S., Jordan and Iraq to virtually collaborate on a sustainable solution to local challenges related to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals. The eight-week challenge was implemented by IREX, a global development and education nonprofit.
