Partnership with ARC:
From the very beginning, ARC has been about bringing people together to work on the world’s greatest humanitarian challenges. ARC’s vision for the 21st Century is to drive for even greater impact by co-creating with amazing people and organizations to address critical problems. And, certainly, one of the most difficult challenges is the increasing vulnerability of children and young people in the Middle East and the continuing destabilization of the region.
As we searched for people doing meaningful, breakthrough work to solve this problem, all roads led to Questscope. For 25 years, Questscope has been doing ground-breaking, award-winning work with marginalized youth in the Middle East and North Africa.
In April, Questscope officially joined the ARC family. A highly valued partner, Questscope has now become a subsidiary of ARC with autonomy to maintain its identity, leadership and unique capacity to collaborate with individuals, communities, local organizations and international partners to create opportunities for young people.

Questscope works to transform the future of vulnerable youth in the Middle East––by equipping them with the resources and hope they need to become compassionate and productive citizens. They do so primarily by providing informal education services and mentoring support to children.
Non-formal Education: Children or young people who are unable to complete a formal education faces a far different trajectory for their future than a child who’s able to receive their diploma. Questscope works with those young people who’ve fallen out of the formal education system to help them get access to alternative educational opportunities and vocational training. They’ve developed a program young people can complete to receive a 10th grade, 11th grade or even a 12th grade diploma – and that piece of paper is critical in helping them find better jobs and build better futures.
Mentoring: Many times, and for many reasons, vulnerable children don’t have parental figures who are present or involved in their lives. Questscope’s mentoring services make sure that every child has a champion.
Questscope has a truly astounding network of trained mentors, numbered in the thousands across countries such as Syria and Jordan. They provide the one-on-one attention that every child needs to navigate the challenges of life. And in a place like Za’atari Camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan, mentoring a young person gives the mentors themselves a new sense of purpose and new hope for the future.
