About

For high school students entering 10th, 11th, and 12th grades and current college students who are interested in hands on learning about social justice, inequality, and its implications.

The class will learn about the effects of:
  • Housing instability in Fairfield County
  • The school to prison pipeline
  • Food insecurity in the land of plenty
  • The achievement gap
  • The lack of affordable health care
  • Transportation barriers and challenges

In this interactive classroom, students will take part in an off-site activity, research an issue that interests them and report out to their peers. HOTS (higher order thinking skills) will be exercised. The training is free though we are asking attendees to bring $50 to-$100 for a Giving Circle where you will pool your resources to donate to an organization making a difference. Comments from previous attendees; "I never knew.", "I came in curious and now I'm committed.", and "I know now that I can make a difference."
