Northridge Academy High School, students held a group social conscience project, where they chose a problem that existed in the world that they wanted to help solve. They prepared a ten-minute multimedia presentation which used this to persuade a panel to fund the charity they thought best helped solve the problem. Nearly thirty groups educated students and the panel about the extent of the problem, the causes of the problem, our connection to the problem, and possible solutions to the problem. Because of the professionalism, creativity, courage, and rhetorical power of their presentation Eric, Mallely, and Irene were able to raise money for Esperanca for the express purpose of providing safe, clean drinking water to villages in Bolivia that lack access.
The purpose of the project was to show students the power they have to make a real difference in the world through their intention, action, and mastery of language and communication. To see how you can help too, contact:
