UKSD has designed the Community Empowerment & Leadership club to connect with schools both locally and across the globe. We work with high school aged participants in order to enhance our knowledge and awareness of social issues which impact our community and others. We work to raise awareness and propose solutions to help combat concerns such as substance abuse, homelessness, hunger, and gender equity.
We 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.
In addition to meeting with our club members face to face, we also have a digital component to keep us connected. Because we have participants from across the globe, we needed a space where they could collaborate. The Community Empowerment and Leadership Club has a google classroom where we are able to interact through discussion threads, group zoom meetings, and one on one online meetings. Our online platform provides a place for participants to share their project ideas, to have virtual discussions regarding social issues, to gain access to physical wellness curriculum, and to seek support and mentorship.
