Description

Do you want to help make the world a better place? Are you upset that many people in our country are treated unfairly and want to do something about it? This class is for you! In this course we will learn why some people do not get the same quality of education as others, why some people struggle to afford enough healthy food and why certain members of our society are not as cared for. During each class we will learn and take action to help repair the world!

  • Week 1: Education Justice and Virtual Book Drive - Learn why many children in our country do not get the same quality of education as others and volunteer from home to help more children have books to read and to succeed in school!
  • Week 2: Food Justice and Food Pantry Donations - Learn why many families do not have enough healthy, affordable food before we learn how to make fruits & veggies last longer in order to help people around the country and gather snacks to donate to local food pantries.
  • Week 3: Social Isolation and Card making for Seniors - Learn about the causes and impact of social isolation on seniors and design cards to send to seniors to brighten their days.
Supply List
  • Week 2: Families will be encouraged to gather pantry donations after the class.
  • Week 3: Paper and something to illustrate with (markers, paints etc.).
