In this class, students will look at the world around them and find ways to become empowered to make a difference. We will define issues in our neighborhoods and students will pick an issue in their community that needs improvement. We will examine what other communities with similar issues are doing, decide which solution would work best for OUR community and then identify who has the power to make that change happen. Finally, we will pick which citizenship tool (letter writing, working with community leaders, education campaign, etc.) would work best to promote the change we are looking to make. Join us to see how YOU can make a difference!
Project Citizen: The Power of Me
For Rising 6th – 8th Grade Students
Your Summer of Discovery Awaits
MITY’s ExplorSchool provides rising 6th-8th grade students a unique opportunity to investigate new topics and dive deeper into their passions at a level that is challenging and motivating. Intellectually curious students take two classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, enabling them to explore different disciplines, experience things that are not possible within a normal school setting, and forge new friendships.
