#COVIDConvo Ep. 9: Big Idea Project: Connecting Teens and Elders via Music
The work of Big Idea Project students improves in caliber and impact every year, and we can’t wait to see how our generation of generous leaders is going to change the world in the future.
Big Idea Project harnesses the transformational power of challenging experience to form the whole-student: how they think, feel and behave.
Teachers connect with local businesses to build their network and increase classroom effectiveness. Businesses receive ongoing opportunities to have a real influence in the education of their future leaders. Students establish relationships with caring adults who mentor and coach them.
Students grow in empathy, compassion, and confidence, while acquiring necessary life skills. They become active citizens. Teachers are reminded of why they teach. Businesses influence their future workforce. Communities find creative solutions to critical problems.
