FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE COMMUNITY...MAKING CHANGE HAPPEN!
Monday, March 22nd
(first day back from Spring break)
Last year, fifth grade students at McCarver Elementary School responded to the tragic murder of their classmate, Zina Linnik, by collaborating with community partners to re-design and renovate two public parks in the Hilltop neighborhood. Rather than solely building a memorial, this effort has expanded to become a genuine community development project involving a wide range of community actors, multiple educational initiatives, and a three million dollar capital fund. Come hear a panel of these young community activists discuss the motivations, challenges and lessons that have shaped their work as they have taken their plans for change from the classroom to the community. FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN BECOME INVOLVED IN MAKING CHANGE HAPPEN!
Free and open to the campus community. This event is cosponsored by Civic Scholarship Initiative, Comparative Sociology, School of Education, and Environmental Policy and Decision Making.
