If you were to dream up your fantasy of an educational program for teens, it would probably include skill-building in conflict resolution, experiential environmental education, and nourishment of creative expression through arts such as music and poetry. Our special guest HawaH Kasat has created this dreamy curriculum, and the organization he founded is successfully pioneering the introduction of this beautiful approach into Washington D.C.’s public schools. Join us on Tuesday to learn more about why and how this was done, and what YOU can do to help it and other such treasures flourish!
