No one is born being a citizen. You have to be taught what it means. Sonia Sotomayor
Do you want to know who you are?
Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.

Thomas Jefferson

The Youth Voices program brings Informed Action Projects directly into schools and classrooms, wherein I work in partnership with teachers and staff to provide subject-specific resources, both texts and vetted community experts, and assist in classrooms with the design and implementation of local and global outreach project. When appropriate, I help coordinate interactions among students pursuing similar projects at other schools, either through direct contacts or at events sponsored by Global Education Motivators, such as the Student Leadership Conference on Development held annually at the United Nations.

Planning for these programs typically begins before the start of a school year, and includes consultation with school administrators and the preparation of grants to support expenses that often exceed school budgets.

GRADE LEVELS: Primary (for in-school and local community projects) through High School (to include participation in international conferences).
