The Impact of Small Actions Towards Big Change (Bay Area)

An interdisciplinary, student-driven approach to community engagement programming in schools supports the development of key competencies needed to move from big ideas to concrete action. As we prepare students to be civically and socially engaged on a daily basis, we need to think about the mindsets and behaviors we are cultivating and the context within which we are developing their competencies. Microcivics, a framework for transforming personal values into habits for long-term impact, creates opportunities for lifelong reflection and action.

In this session, we offer our perspective on how curriculum, project-based learning, and age-appropriate framework can create a pathway for short and long term impact in both local and global communities.

During this session participants will:

  • Explore microcivics as a framework for social impact

  • Share useful methodologies and mindsets essential in moving from ideation to implementation

  • Analyze the difference between more individual, student-driven projects vs. collective engagement

  • Design a microcivics project in collaboration with other educators

  • Reflect on the possible applications of micro-civics in your own school

The learning portion of our workshop will run from 1:00-5:00pm, with an optional happy hour from 5:00-6:00pm.
