EYEJ is a non-profit organization that thrives on empowering and amplifying the voices of teens and pre-teens by bridging them with diverse individuals to engage in interactive discussions centered around social justice. These group members were able to pilot the Discussion Series focused on 6-8th graders to discuss issues that are relevant to today’s society, such as: exploring money, civil rights, stress and its impact, conflict resolution, and much more.
Volunteers will be asked to dedicate two hours to each event. Events will take place at one of the three CMSD schools EYEJ serves: Miles Park, Mound, and Fullerton. The first and last half hour will be spent preparing for the discussion and reflecting on it, while the middle hour is when the discussion with the children occurs.
Volunteer speakers will spend one hour speaking with the youth of their same gender identity about the topic of the month. A curriculum plan is provided to the speakers before the event for them to review and plan with their co-speaker.
Volunteer coordinators will take notes on the event and handle the distribution of surveys after the discussion.
Volunteer facilitator is a speaker dedicated to visiting the children on a monthly basis to demonstrate commitment
