Episode Description

What happens when you combine social-emotional and leadership development with the performing arts? You get Global Girls, Inc. Join us to hear how students are creating and staging original works that not only entertain, but also unpack, challenge, and heal. Spirited, soulful, and authentic productions evolve from conversations around first-person narratives. As themes emerge, songs, improvisations and dances follow and result in “socially-conscious, participant-driven theatre”.

The Power of Young People to Change the World

The Power of Young People to Change the World

Thursday at 3 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

This show is perfect for youth who want to change the world and for adults who want to foster youth innovation and imagination through real-world education. Youth listeners gain a connection to other young people who are passionate about making the world a better place by addressing issues like climate change, education equity, poverty, mental health, and more. Adult listeners are inspired by stories of youth as change agents and gain practical advice on how to partner with youth and how to incorporate service-learning into their classrooms, afterschool programs or homes.

Youth are recognized as partners who understand their rights and obligation to act in the benefit of the public good. From young people who are affected by issues, to adult allies who work with them, join me to discover and discuss leadership that creates space for each person to take ownership and affect change so that all people are inspired to Serve. Learn. Change the world.
