Preparing for the Unified Champion Schools Youth Activation Summit!

by Susan Hoyer.

We recently had an amazing Bootcamp weekend with all of the students who will be teaching sessions at the Youth Activation Summit in November.  The powerful model of Unified Champion schools is students teaching students. We know that students pay more attention to what other students have to say, and the expectation for participating in our summit is that the students will take away information to implement inclusive and unified activities, as well as, a Respect Campaign in their home schools and districts. What better way to get ideas and be inspired, than from people that are just like you? Students relate to each other, and can have authentic conversations about their struggles and successes.
