Overview

The Social Justice League Learning Community is an exciting new Learning Community designed for TRiO, the YES Program for current and former Foster Youth and students wanting to learn how to use their education to address social justice issues in their communities.

The Social Justice League combines Math, English and Communications to study real-world social issues, such as poverty, homelessness, equality, food security, environment preservation, and women's rights, among others.

Students will learn how to ask critical questions, research real-life problems, and effectively communicate research through writing and public speaking. They will become empowered to create global change and justice for all.
