Students as Changemakers: Creating Opportunities to Build a Better Tomorrow
*This is a free event, registration is requested.*
We face so many problems of social justice that involve education, food, health, the climate, employment, racism, and more. The older generations can’t solve the issues alone. We need to equip our youth with the skills and confidence to tackle the challenges facing our human family…we need a generation of changemakers.
Remarks by Dr. André Morgan, Director of Opportunity, Access and Equity for Beverly (MA) Public Schools who will then lead a panel discussion composed of student changemakers from Pingree and Beverly High Schools, as well as an alumnus from The Food Project.
Come be inspired by the student changemakers in our community and learn how you can support their efforts or spark some change of your own!
