UKSD has designed the Empowerment & Leadership club as a way to implement after school clubs at High Schools throughout Cape Cod, the South Shore, and other areas across Eastern MA. We will be working with high school aged participants in order to enhance our knowledge and awareness of social issues which impacts communities both locally and globally. A major component of our work will revolve around inequality and social issues within communities. We will work to raise awareness and propose solutions to help combat concerns such as substance abuse, homelessness, hunger, and gender equity.
We will work together to create projects which will be focused on helping our communities, proposing solutions to inequalities, and implementing our ideas through events, awareness campaigns, and personal action. Along with our own creations, we will also implement the Coaches Across Continents Curriculum. We will use their interactive and innovative activities to set a strong foundation for our understanding of each issue. This club is open to any high school aged participant who is eager and willing to create change through project design and group collaboration. We aim to connect participants who are diverse in gender, background, and ideas.
