Abstract

This workshop is an interactive session in which participants will learn about and experience plans for action and advocacy -- a conference designed by college students for younger students, with a focus on social-emotional learning and development. Through multiple channels, including workshops, panels, and open project spaces, children will develop an increased awareness of their own goals and sources of inspiration. Different media and modalities will open up different entry points into the experience, such as creative writing, art activities, and mindfulness practices. Creating this conference empowers the college students to work with faculty and community leaders in these disciplines, creating relationships that will last for years to come. The conference experience also equips college students with skills that they can transfer into their future careers, such as fundraising, advocacy work, and organizing in the spirit of enacting social change. The process, in turn, empowers younger students with skills, mindsets, and connections that they can use as leaders of their own learning.
