About

For high school students interested in hands on learning about social justice, inequality, and the implications for a better world.

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 then report out to their peers. 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."
