Does your child feel strongly about justice? In brainstorming with our community, we learned how many teens are passionate about important causes and want to advocate for change! What will this club look like? Under the guidance of acclaimed instructors Mike Cantlon and Ava Sharifi, the teen founders of this group will create its mission and vision and select causes. Will it be a conversation group or will there be a newsletter, real-world advocacy, usage of social media like TikTok, and/or experiments in community organizing? It's up to the teen members who found the group. It promises to be not only fun, social and engaging, but also a great addition to any college application.
