What’s the Story? The Vermont Young People Social Action Team
What’s the Story? (WtS) empowers young people to become informed, strategic, and empathic change agents on topics of social concern that they choose. At no cost to students or schools, WtS nurtures and networks self-reflective young leaders through authentic, challenging, and collaborative work.
WtS is an innovative, credit-bearing course that invites middle and high school students from across Vermont to work in teams that are united by a common passion around a topic of social concern. Cohorts of young leaders extend across geographies, schools, ages, and academic interests and are connected to the Next Generation Leadership Network (NGLN) of young people and teachers who are pedagogically and practically committed to responsible and involved citizenship. What’s the Story? and NGLN have emerged from the teaching and learning at Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English and the Bread Loaf Teacher Network.
