My Students

If the last few months have taught us anything, it has taught us that the youth of this country have a voice and they want to be heard. They have ideas, they are organized, they understand concepts like branding, scaling, and saturation. With unrestricted access to digital resources, they are a force to be reckoned with. My students are no different. With 2400 high school students, there are bound to be opinions, passions, and perspectives that are worth sharing with others.

My students need an outlet and opportunity to speak their truth in a way that is civil, respectful, and leads to positive change for our community and the world at large.

With "Podcasts & PSA's for Good", my students will have the equipment they need to create public service announcement videos that can be shared on social media. Podcasts will be produced by students on issues that resonate with them.

My Project

Civic engagement gives students a sense of agency and voice, empowering them to affect positive change in their community, nation, and world. Through "Podcasts & PSA's For Change" high school students will learn how to turn issues that they care about into actions that inform others.

By creating short, well produced videos and audio podcasts, high school students will provide practical solutions that have the potential to make the World a better place for everyone.

Issues that students might focus on include practical ways to slow climate change, protect water resources, negate food insecurity, promote digital citizenship, and improve access to education for women around the world.

The only thing that is getting in the way is our lack of equipment. Help us start the 2018-19 school year by helping our school equip our podcast recording studio with a boom mic, headphones, and mixing board & our video production pod with a green screen and scaffold.
