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 challenges

Students will take part in 2 off-site activities, research the issue that interests them most and report out to their peers. The training is free though we are asking attendees to bring $25-$100 to pool for a Giving Circle exercise. Typical 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."
