Your generous donation to this project creates the opportunity for 30 underserved Californian students who desire change and better decisions in their lives a chance to change their trajectory and develop the skills to help others in their community make thoughtful choices for a more just and sustainable future.

Solution

This program provides 30 high school youth with hands-on experiences, identity exploration, empathy training, service learning and community-building tools. Students will make a substantial contribution to their community by collaborating on a service project. Upon completion, they are empowered with new skills, as well as respect for themselves, their peers and our shared natural resources. This collaborative process provokes empathy and understanding through focused non-violent communication.

Long-Term Impact

Students learn that while they are all unique, they share universal struggles. This discovery builds empathy and understanding within their class and inspires them with the confidence to take responsibility for their actions and share this value with others.
