Let’s build the movement for good.

RaiseYourVoice.jpg

Students are people. Our ideas and opinions matter. We shouldn’t need permission to speak. Adults don’t raise their hands when they’re having a conversation, and neither should we. Grab a megaphone and let’s get our hands dirty solving real problems with real people.

Join One Stone for a two-day interactive gathering in Boise, Idaho, where students (and a few adults) will share stories and strategies to inspire, organize, and lead a national movement to empower positive change in the world.

A STUDENT-LED MOVEMENT TO INSPIRE ACTION THROUGH:

INNOVATIVE LEARNING

Students are people first. When we intentionally grow our mindset, creativity, skills, and knowledge to express ourselves with confidence, we build a toolkit for life. Discover how innovative schools and programs leverage individual choice, relevancy, and passion to help us pursue life with purpose and stand up for what we believe in.

CULTURE BUILDING

We have the power to create positive learning environments that practice empathy, gratitude, vulnerability, and risk taking. We need to collaborate and communicate to solve big problems, and that requires a safe and supportive space. Learn how adults can inspire incredible social-emotional and academic growth by creating meaningful relationships with students.

CHANGE MAKING

We’re here to disrupt the status quo for good! How might we advocate, organize, and inspire change nationally or globally? How might we impact a person’s life through an experiential service project that uses empathy to change their life for the better? How might we practice design thinking to tackle complex, human-centered problems?

inspire good.

Share stories about innovative learning models and how the power of students is making the world a better place. Discover how you can do it too!

PRACTICE good.

Learn best practices to organize a youth-led movement and experience how to collaborate with teens to tackle real-world, human-centered problems.

create good.

Speak up. Find a wrong that needs a right. Explore solutions to problems you’re passionate about. Assemble the troops. Get your hands dirty. Make change for good.
