Our project will give teenage refugees a safe place to honor the human condition. We will do this by, 1) coming together each week to strengthen our mind - body connection through the practice of ballet, 2) Incorporating music from around the world including natural sounds, 3) At the end of every class, we will incorporate a dance from each student's culture, highlighting the diversity and different meanings of dance, 4) we will open and close every class with wish/prayer for the earth, its animals, or its people.
Myself and other Global Glimpse participants accepted into the program will ask for the volunteering support of Zumba teachers who will run the classes, will advertise through online invitations, posters, and flyers, and also bake healthy snacks to sell as part of a bake sale at the event. To attend there will also be an entrance fee. All donations/money collected will be put to support other students in being able to travel internationally and have a valuable experience.
We are going to use the month of December to educate people on what is happening and why it is important. We will go on our high school's news videos, newspaper, and create posters and morning announcements to get the word out. During January, we will sell pins that say "I Stand with Standing Rock" (we figured more people would donate to the cause if they know what it is first). The money gathered from the pins will be donated to the efforts to stop the pipeline and protect Native Americans.
To solve the problem has a group. To talk and discuss the problem and come up with an action plan to improve the problem as a team.
It will create education and reflection of future actions local people can do with the comunity, as well as the recognition of the amazing art who exist in México and is not known
In my youth, I was extremely fortunate to meet someone who (despite my objections) convinced me that I could have, do, or be anything I truly desired. Needless to say, he got my attention. It wasn’t because I was anyone special or out of the ordinary. This, he told me, applied to everyone. If I was willing to put in the time to study, learn, and apply what I was learning, he said, I would certainly see wonderful results. As it turns out, he was right. The more I studied the mind, human potential, and personal development, the more I came to believe that what Simon Attah had been telling me all along was indeed true. Through applying those lessons, I was appointed branch manager of a financial institution by the age of 22… at the time, the youngest person in Ghana to ever have done so. I discovered to my complete joy and amazement that what I was learning and then applying….was working! I learned a great deal being involved in the financial industry, but my heart was soon pulling me in the direction of being totally, absolutely, fully immersed in my studies. Just a few years later (after passing up another promotion opportunity), I quit my job and went to work with Simon Attah. With his blessing and encouragement, I soon formed my own Study Abroad company – Cosmos Study Abroad And Counselling Agency, Ghana, that was 6 years ago. Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to have taught extensively throughout Ghana and in a number of Africa countries on setting, pursuing and achieving goals. One of my very favourite speaking engagements over that time — for the last 2 years, in fact — has been at Ghana youth initiative camp for young adults. I see an incredible amount of talent and potential in each one of them, and more importantly, I want to be sure they see this in themselves. Imagine if every young adult around the globe could see within him or herself an abundance of positive possibility? Imagine if each one had the motivation and confidence to express that possibility? This has become my personal mission and it’s what led to the development of the Ghana Youth Project. We’re here to inspire, enliven, educate, and empower as many young people as possible to become courageous, confident, goal achievers.
We will do this by creating posters for each goal and hanging them in the glass corridor of our school. In addition we will designate a week to be Peace Week where we will have members of the community decorate doves to hang around school, make videos and collages supporting our goals of world peace and generally making the community feel inspired and able to make a peaceful difference in our world.

A lower elementary class in Lexington Montessori School chose to engage the school community and ask that everyone recycle devices that were no longer being used. The class spoke to parents, staff and students about the issues of coltan mining. Groups made signs and drop boxes, some took time to speak to each and every class and others manned collection areas. The class chose one day where everyone could easily drop their devices before and after school during drop off and pick up. An email was sent to the school community so that everyone was aware of the recycling day.
This project is meant to kick off a service learning/ social justice initiative. This funding will allow us to hold a community meeting of interested parties to engage in a conversation about how to best engage students in understanding the community where they go to school, it's significant history and there role as citizens of that community. This meeting will help to build community awareness and buy-in for the project as well as be a means to gather individuals who already are willing to contribute time and talent to the project.
