Work of Interns in Chicago focuses attention on poverty neighborhoods

This graphic is from a YouTube video created this month by one of two college students from South Korea who were working with me in Chicago. 

And this graphic is from a Prezi done by a second intern. You can view all six of their presentations here.

This is work that could be done by junior high and high school students in schools all across the country. Kids in high poverty areas could be calling attention to the need for extra learning supports, safe places in non-school hours, etc. in the neighborhoods where they live. Kids in more affluent areas could be mobilizing parents, neighbors, classmates, etc. to support schools and non-school programs in the poverty areas of the metropolitan areas where they live.

They could all be learning new communications and network building skills, while building confidence in their own ability to influence the world they will be living in as adults.   I support the interns in the Tutor/Mentor Connection Ning site and invite others to join in and add their own students to this effort.
