“Our vision is to make students who are learning English feel more comfortable at our school and make sure they have the resources for this to happen.”

We’re thrilled to announce the 2017-2018 KIND Schools Challenge winners: Medford High School’s ELL Give Back team

Students Rubia Fernandes, Luiza Barbosa, and Jenna Agnone along with their faculty advisor Michael Skorker brought their school together by offering a way for new English Language Learner (ELL) students to navigate their community. In an effort to make the transition more comfortable and less stressful, the team created videos in seven different languages explaining everything from opening a locker to obtaining a bus pass. The project not only creates a helpful, welcoming environment for new students, but also raises awareness for the obstacles ELL students face.

Here’s what their fellow students had to say about the project:

Watch all of the instructional videos on the ELL Give Back website and use this toolkit to bring the project—and other KIND School Challenge activities—to your school.

The KIND Schools Challenge is a partnership between The KIND Foundation, started by KIND Healthy Snacks, and Making Caring Common to support students seeking to make their schools kinder and more inclusive. Out of 200 ideas that were submitted from across the country, 10 incredible finalists were selected to implement their projects. ELL Give Back was named the winning project.
