INTRODUCING THE 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS YOUTH WORKSHOP
Our workshop utilizes a research based youth-to-youth approach and resources on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through our workshop, students will have the unique opportunity to engage with a research based quiz that pairs them with a personalized group of Sustainable Development Goals and associated careers. It is our hope that students will leave our workshop with the knowledge and confidence to see the interconnectivity of the Sustainable Development Goals in every line of work and where they can make a difference beginning in their own communities.
All jobs play an important role in the success of our communities.
“We know that youth are the future and we want to provide them with the tools and skills to recognize that small actions ripple into possibilities of extraordinary change! With our workshop, we hope to fill the gap in the education system in regards to the disparities in our local communities and empower youth to be agents of change by acting locally, while thinking globally.”
