|Middle School, 6th - 8th Grade|
Social justice is our theme this year, centering on five of our seven UU principles and encouraging youth to look beyond themselves to larger world issues and concerns. We use two curricula:
In Our Hands: An exploration of phenomena in human life today that manifest in injustices and conflict. We also learn about the contributions of contemporary and historical UUs to peace-making and building justice in the world.
Heeding the Call: Qualities of a Justicemaker: Imagining ourselves as agents of change in the world is an important step in developing qualities crucial to justice work. Youth reflect on their own lives while making connections to the lives of others, building self-awareness while growing as leaders.
