Thursday marked the beginning of our Leaders of Change program, and we hit the ground running! After introducing our employees to Harambee, we broke out into our research groups for the summer. Our Wilson Elementary Team traveled to Wilson Community School to meet their Junior Leaders of Change, and our Educator/Mentor and Street Teams stayed at UCHS to discuss their summer projects. We dismissed early because of heat, but we had a productive first day of work!
Another hot day on Friday didn’t stop our employees! On Friday, our teams practiced and debuted their team names and team cheers! Later on, our students looked at the types of barriers that exist (political, social, historical and social) to help frame their summer research.
Check out some of our photos from the first week!
