Into The World

In this series of me-to-we activities and writing assignments, young people will explore the ways in which individual and collective action affect the world in which they live. The intention is that each individual recognizes their ability and power to become champions for positive social change and employs the critical thinking and goal setting skills needed to create change. With conversation starters designed to advance active listening, respectful sharing and a mindset for trailblazing, our hope is that a culture of shared inquiry will offer a lived example of meaningful collaborative work and a model for community building.
