How might we practice good to make students better leaders and the world a better place?
As the saying goes, practice makes perfect.
But when it comes to student voice, practice creates change.
Hands Down, Voices Up – A Summit to Empower Student Voice will explore the idea of practicing good, and what that looks like, at JUMP in Downtown Boise from October 23-25.
Students and supportive adults will be invited to explore three topics at the summit: how to inspire, practice and create good.
“We want to dive deep into how to inspire, practice and create good,” says Viveca Beall, One Stone learner and HDVU team member. “It’s what we do at One Stone on a daily basis, and we want to share that with other student leaders from around the country. But we also want to know what that looks like in other cities and towns. The best way to grow is to learn from each other.”
HDVU team members says this portion of the summit is largely inspired by One Stone’s Do Good Day, when learners go out into the community to create change through volunteering and service.
“People are going to be traveling here from all over the country, and we’ll have them participate in a couple of exercises similar to what we do during Do Good Day. Some of them are designed to be team building, others are going to level the playing field between students and adults,” says Jadon Chen, HDVU organizer and One Stone learner.
After spending time on the concept of inspiring and practicing good during the first part of the summit, attendees will shift their focus to explore ways to create good in their own communities. HDVU organizers are excited to see what comes from this part of the summit, since attendees will generate their own ideas for change and creating good.
