We will examine how schools across the U.S. are using YPAR to transform school climate, learning environments and achieve educational equity, while simultaneously improving adult culture, work environments and teacher morale. In each session, we will explore how to improve schools for everyone by working collaboratively with students using a set of activity-based, action-oriented exercises and protocols, and sharing model action projects that have been used successfully in other schools. Everyone will leave with a personal plan of action and YPAR Tool Kit they can use for leading and sustaining school climate improvement to ensure that all students thrive.
