The goal of the project is to raise awareness of water issues in our country and guide youth (our hope for the future) to find sustainable long-term solutions. This project will have a positive impact by empowering youth in leadership positions to incorporate traditional knowledge with modern science to bring a new and holistic perspective on the need to protect our natural environment and the interconnectedness between peoples, animals and the environment. This project ties into the theme of Indigenous Perspectives by incorporating Indigenous knowledge on water from elders and youth living in remote Northern Ontario communities, with the voices of non-Indigenous youth living in major cities and urban centers.

The project will begin with researching local water issues with a visit to the local Credit River. Students will Skype with other classes from across the country comparing tap water results and prior to participating in a 'Water Walk' with the Junior Water Walkers, students will meet virtually with a Water Elder to learn Indigneous 'Ways of Knowing.'

The second grade students will study the lives and messages of three important environmental conservationists and activists: Jane Goodall, Greta Thunberg, and Daphne Sheldrick. They will then write a variety of opinion peices to share their understanding of the important work these woman have done and continue to do. The second grade students will also learn about Earth Day and what it means to 'live green'. They will then write, illustrate, and share persuasive essays to inspire others to show compassion for our wonderful natural world.

On Earth Day 2019 we are going to visit our local conservation office to drop off materials and also talk to people who come in about the Red Wolf. Then we are headed out hiking with more materials and information to pass out. We will never stop speaking up to help save this species from the brink of extinction. They are losing their habitat and we need to change this. Together we can, Together we will!!!

We will not only learn about growing plants and food, but we will create a garden. This will be the end of the summer project for the science class.
United States
We will start our own community garden that will compare growing using the water tower we own and the raised bed that is already on our property. With the guidance of our local 4-H club we will care for and learn all about our crops and what environments they need to produce best. The items grown will all be ingredients to a recipe that the youth will use the harvest to create and serve to the community.

We will host workshops, canvass neighborhoods as well as attend resource fairs to educate the public

We provide youth, who are growing up without their fathers, access to a positive, male role-model through our Youth Enrichment program. Our team members are a group of passionate individuals who have embraced brokenness in their own lives, and in-turn have committed their lives to supporting the fathers, families and youth we serve with doing the same thing. We provide low-income youth growing up without fathers with life skill education and activities that allow them to explore themselves and the world outside of Dorchester. We also help fathers have equal access to their children while ensuring that state agencies treat them with dignity and respect. We will alleviate this problem for fathers and youth through our Bags for Dads Initiative. These fathers have limited socioeconomic support and limited resources. Basic personal hygiene products, and a duffel bag to keep their belongings, serves as a fundamental tool for success as an individual and as a father. One-hundred percent of men who are released from incarceration are given only a plastic bag upon release. It is not uncommon for these clients to return to an unstable living situation and a hectic day-to-day schedule. Functioning in an fast-paced, high-stress environment is more manageable if the products we are able to provide can be kept in a safe, portable location. Bags for Dads includes a duffel bag of hygiene products, therapeutic transport from prison to home, a personalized mental health treatment plan and Life Coach connection. Through greater access to mental health services we can reunited fathers with their children. This project educates youth about the effects of incarceration as well as prevent/undo stigma of fathers of color and fathers who have been incarcerated. The hands-on learning is more effective than traditional classroom learning and provides youth with a way to give back though they are unable to donate hygiene items directly.
