Event Details

Moms and their tweens will come together for an interactive and hands on half day workshop to discuss our role as global citizens. The morning will include panels of both moms and tweens, community leaders and role models and hands on activities including writing letters and communicating to members of Congress and creating a video about the power of our voices. 

Topics that will be discussed:

  • What are the causes and things that we care about?
  • What does it mean to be a change agent?
  • How can we use our voices for good?
  • How can moms and families model being global citizens?
  • What has worked?
  • What are ways we can use technology to be global citizens?
  • What social media platforms are appropriate for tweens?
This workshop is a great first step for tweens and their parents who are looking to use their voice in a more active and intentional way. Deep experience in advocacy or social good work is not required to attend.  The hope is that the conversations from the workshop will help make being a global citizen and change agent or advocate, more a part of our every day lives in ways that are meaningful to each attendee.

Agenda for the morning:

  • Registration & Breakfast: 8:30-9:15

While we know that there are many mature 7 year old out there, for space and activity purposes, we request that only 8-12 year old tweens attend the event. 

The event will be live-streamed so that other children and ages can participate virtually.

Moms+Tweens+SocialGood is only one day away!

As the big day approaches and the finishing touches are put on activities and the agenda I just wanted to share a few updates.

Remember that breakfast will be served from 8:30-9:15 during which I will also invite everyone to brainstorm ideas and do some personal reflection to help us get started.

A Grow Global Citizens Toolkit will be shared digitally with everyone with lists of resources shared during the morning.

Waivers for video and photography will be available at registration for you to sign.
