We are thrilled to announce the new members of our 2018-2019 Youth Advisory Board (YAB). The board represents a diverse group of young people who will work with Making Caring Common this academic year to make schools and communities more just, caring, and respectful places.
As part of YAB, students will collaborate with one another to help address some of the most pressing ethical and moral issues facing young people today. Board members will provide feedback on Making Caring Common strategies and initiatives and share their perspectives on current events and issues in the media. They will also implement year-long projects to develop their leadership skills and cultivate a culture of kindness in their schools and communities.
The 25 members of the 2018-2019 board were selected from a pool of more than 220 applicants in grades 9-12 in the United States. The board represents 19 states across the country, as well as a diversity of backgrounds and identities. This year’s members are united by their strong commitment to empathy and promoting MCC’s mission of raising kids who care about others and the common good.Read More
