Staff pick: Peace First Challenge
We're thrilled to welcome Glenn Manning to the Making Caring Common team! Glenn's background spans teaching, SEL program administration, and curriculum development, and he will be working closely with schools in the Making Caring Common community on the Caring Good #CommonGood campaign and the relaunch of our Caring Schools Network later this year.
For this month's staff pick, Glenn wants to make sure young people (and the parents and educators in their lives) know about the Peace First Challenge, which will distribute $250 mini-grants to youth-led projects focused on making communities kinder and more inclusive.
