So You Want to Change the World: Foundations of Community Engagement

Professor: Melissa Levy
Credits: 3

EDHS 1120

How can we be part of creating a more just world? In this course, we’ll aim to answer that question for ourselves by examining practices of youth and community engagement through a critical and discerning lens. We’ll reflect on our own practice engaging with youth and their communities, examine our roles in those relationships and interactions, explore the complexities and importance of culture, and consider our own cultural influences.
