During the Middle School Virtual ChangeMaker’s Winter Session, participants will gain heart-centered tools for stepping into their power, purpose and identity with increasing confidence and courage. As they explore their own lived experiences, they will gain confidence in expressing their true opinions and feelings about what they are experiencing.
Through identifying their values and what they feel passionate about, participants will develop the ability to express their true sense of self and the ability to use their unique voices to make change.
Over the course of 6 weeks, participants will learn about various changemaking frameworks and how to apply them to issues relevant to their immediate personal life. In this way, our Middle School program offers a means for processing the world around them through a changemaking lens and adopting new tools to help them advocate for the real change they want to see in their lives, schools and communities. By connecting and collaborating with girls from other schools, states and countries, participants will have the opportunity to develop the skill set necessary to communicate across geographic and cultural differences – and build lasting friendships!
