Event description

Description

Part pep rally, part global summit, the World Savvy Festival is an annual culminating event for middle and high school students participating in the World Savvy Classrooms program. The day long event brings students from different schools together to share and get feedback on their research and action plans to address global issues that have local impacts. Students also engage with each other through a mini design challenge. Here is a glimpse into a past festival.

This year, the theme for the festival is Breaking Barriers. Students have been researching human trafficking, educational inequities, pollution, teen suicide and mental health, Black Lives Matter, food deserts, domestic violence, renewable energy, and more.

On Festival day, we’re looking for volunteers to help:

  • Serve as judges, meeting with groups of students to listen to them present their projects and offer feedback using a rubric.

  • Serve as facilitators, guiding one or more groups of students through a mini Knowledge 2 Action, design thinking workshop.

  • Serve as operations volunteers, helping with various logistics throughout the day such as guiding and greeting students, handing out lunch, and registration.

  • Most volunteer shifts will be from 9:30am-2:30pm.

If you are interested in volunteering as an individual or group please register through Eventbrite and fill out the registration form.

This event would not be possible without our volunteers. We hope to see you there!

Thank you!
