Upstanders Academy: where kids build the skills & confidence to change the world by working on real life, community connected, passion projects.


Days: 6 Tuesdays
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 pm
Dates: Mar 23 to Apr 27
Ages: 8 to 13
Price: $120 per family

We will delve into the theme of Animal Rights, Welfare and Rescue and the kids will work on passion projects that will make the world a better place. They will choose the specific topics that they want to work on related to helping animals and the actions they want to take, and I will provide the tools and resources needed to help them achieve their goals.

The possibilities for the actions we can take, and the learning we will do, over the 6 weeks are endless but include such things as: interviewing guest experts, recording podcasts, making videos, blogging, starting petitions, connecting with other organizations around the world, presenting to local leaders and writing stories and articles.

I will support the children as they guide their own learning. The children will gain confidence and important life skills that will help them become self-motivated changemakers with a life-long love for learning.
