Ferndale Schools, in partnership with US2 Consulting, will be presenting two virtual panel discussions about the importance of engaging young people in discussions about fairness, community, and social change.
Virtual Panel Discussions
Empowering Elementary Voices
Wednesday, Feb 9th | 7:00 – 8:00 PM via Facebook Live
Empowering Elementary Voices: Our world is changing by the minute and our children are being asked to navigate difficult conversations, situations, and surroundings. One of the most empowering skills we can teach our children is the power of voice. Join this panel discussion, featuring our very own Katie Jeffrey, Principal of Ferndale Upper Elementary School, and other experts as we discuss how to empower student voices against unfairness and joining together to create a community of belonging.
Empowering Young Adult Voices
Tuesday, March 1st | 7:00 – 8:00 PM via Facebook Live
Our young adults of today are motivated by social change and inundated with opinions and information on a regular basis - mostly through social media. It can be a challenge to navigate this information and sort through it in a productive way. Join this panel discussion featuring our very own David Gardner, Principal of University High School, and other experts as we discuss how to empower our young adult voices both online and in person toward a more equitable and inclusive environment.
